2 Weeks in UK - Itinerary Ideas?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be in the UK for 14 days (not including travel days from/to US) late May/early June. We plan to fly to London and spend about 4 days there, take train to Salisbury for 1-2 days, 1-2 days in Bath and then "something", ending with about 3 days in Edinburgh where we will catch our return flight. That 3-4 day "something" in the middle has me baffled. No great interest in seeing the Cotswolds just to see Shakespeare country or Liverpool/Manchester area. And since we will be heading to Edinburgh, it would make sense to be heading north after Bath. So I was thinking either the Lakes District or Yorkshire or even heading all the way up to Inverness and backtrack to Edinburgh. Thoughts?
As for us, we are interested in history, castles, museums, scenery (including possibly some short hikes) and shopping. And we tend to want to stay in a place for 2 nights minimum rather than hop from hotel to hotel every night.
Also, depending on our path, would it be better to take the train north or drive? Outside of the large cities, I have no problem with "wrong way driving".
