Advice on our whirlwind week in England!

Jump to last reply

My dad, DH and I will be going to England for the first time next May. I would like some advice on our itinerary.

Saturday May 17: Arrive in London @ 7am; retrieve rental car; Windsor Castle, Stonehenge; arrive in Bath for the night
Breakfast idea around Windsor? Lunch idea around Stonehenge?

Sunday May 18: Bath; late evening drive back to LHR to return car; tube to our London B&B
Is one full day in Bath enough?

Monday May 19: London sights

Tuesday May 20: Take the train to Winchester for the day

Wednesday May 21 and Thursday May 22: London sights

Friday May 23: Fly home

With 3 full days in London, do we have time for:
Tower of London; British Museum; Kensington Palace (other sights of Kensington Gardens); St Paul's Cathedral; Museum of London (possibly); other suggestions?

other sights you can't tour but would like to see...Buckingham Palace; Houses of Parliament; Big Ben

How would you pair everything to make the most of our days? Does it sound like a well rounded whirlwind of a first timers week in England? Is it a good idea to see London sights for a day, Monday, then go to Winchester for a day to follow with two days in London? Or, would you get Winchester out of the way on Monday then see London three days in a row?

Thanks in advance!
