So I intend to travel up North for a long weekend this Thursday. Normally I take M11 - A1(M) as it is closer to me and almost always is open with minimal roadworks. I have tried M1 once and almost 60% of the time it had 50-60mph limit and I hated it. However this is the first time I am travelling with my newborn so would like to have the option of making as many stops as necessary so having frequent services would be best. Any ideas which of these would be better for travelling with family?
