Trip Report 4 glorious weeks in the English countryside + photos

Jump to last reply

I'm a bit late posting this report of my journey throughout England during the entire month of July. I've decided to post a summary of each week, mentioning the highlights of each. Less than half of my photos are posted, but I'm working on it! Thanks so much to Fodorites who made suggestions concerning itinerary.

To start, here is a map of my itinerary.

I chose to fly into Newcastle, pick up a rental car (after an overnight at a hotel), and drive up to Howick, Northumberland to stay with friends. It turned out to be a sort of Downton Abbey-like adventure, in that I stayed in a cottage on the estate of Howick Hall.

More to come...
