9 days in London in early Sept, 3rd trip, should I get out of the city?

Jump to last reply

Hello all! I just booked airfare to London for early September, got a heck of a deal on British Airways! This will be my 3rd trip to London, previous trips were for 1 week each. I have seen most of the sites in London and have taken several day trips with the London Walks Explorer Days (Bath, Oxford, Cotswolds, Leeds Castle, York). I could easily spend the entire time in London, but I am thinking I should get out of the city and see some countryside? Cornwall, the Lake District, and the Peak District are all appealing. I am a huge Jane Austen and Downton Abbey fan and would love to see some of the filming sites. Highclere Castle would be fabulous. I'd prefer not to drive so it would have to be someplace with reliable public transportation that is easy to use.

I am also going with a friend, this is her 2nd trip, she wants to go to Paris for a few days but I would rather stay in England. What are your suggestions on how to divvy up the days?

Also, hotel recommendations for London would be fabulous... Stayed in Shepherd's Bush and Bayswater neighborhoods on the last 2 trips, we really liked Bayswater but I have heard that Kensington is also good. Hotel budget is under $180 a night.
