    I’d be tempted to go M65, Skipton, Harrogate, Ripon, A1. Less miles at least.

    M6 A66 for me.

    is the M62-A1 gonna be hell?

    A666 north through Darwen, which will be the worst bit. Then M65 east and Skipton, Harrogate, Ripon. Plenty of nice pubs en route to stop for supper; might as well enjoy the drive.

    End of the 65 is horrible in rush hour, but it”s by far the nicest route.
    62/A1 is where bad people go when they die.

    Avoid the M65 and Skipton/Harrogate

    +1 on the M61/M6/A685/A66 route, or if you want a scenic route, come off the M6 earlier and take the A684 and have fish and chips in Hawes. That may be caravan hell on a nice Friday in June though, the A66 has some dual- carriageway sections.
