There's a major difference in driving habits between the US and the UK. In the US, driving six hours to vacation is considered easy; in the UK, even a one-hour drive is seen as exhausting.

It all boils down to the size of the two nations. To drive from the top to the bottom of England takes just under 10 hours, so one hour seems like a relatively long time. In the US, it takes 14 hours to drive across Texas alone, so six hours in the car is a relatively quick journey.
