All England or London and Paris?

Jump to last reply

We are finally making it to Europe as a family (children 20 and 15). Using all sorts of points and frequent flyer options to make it all work. We had to book our flights in and out of London because of this and we have 11 nights total.

We are debating how best to use these days given that we have to come and go from London. Should we set up base in London for six days and then move to Bath (or some other England location) for the remainder and just move around at a leisurely pace? Or, is the better approach to stay in London for six days and then move to Paris for five days (even though we will have to get back to London)? Both sound very appealing - one day it sounds better to wander around English small towns and the next day I am thinking who knows when we will be that close to Paris again and seeing it for a few days is better than potentially never seeing it.

We love it all when we travel - want to visit the "must sees" and particularly love outdoor activities. Not as much into fine dining or shopping. We really just love walking around places and getting a feel for the culture and scenery.

Thank you so much for your help with this dream trip!
