5 days in Edinburgh and then?

Jump to last reply

We will be in Edinburgh for 5 days in May. We will then have ~ 1 week before needing to arrive at Heathrow for our trip back to Boston. We are pretty well set on the fact that we will go south from Edinburgh, and not explore farther north into Scotland.

DH had the idea that we would spend time in and around York, then Cambridge and back to Heathrow from there.

As I look at the map, I see that the Lake District and the Cotswalds/Bath are as logical of an itinerary as his plan. We have gone to Salisbury and Stonehenge in the past so that would not be our plan this time.

Anyone have ideas/suggestions? This may be our last trip to the UK if we move out to the west coast. We just spent 3 wonderful nights in London in October, so that also would not be a destination this time. We need to start making train and hotel plans soon---actually we already should have, but we have not. My fault, not his. I have dragged my feet.

Thanks to any and all who might have suggestions, opinions, input!

PS Exact time frame-checking out of Edinburgh hotel on May 13th late morning---departing Heathrow for Boston May 20th at 5:00 PM, which means we do not need to be in London on the night before our departure from LHR.
