Best English towns to visit for a day out of London?

Jump to last reply

Hi

someone on this board suggested that we take a look at various English towns: York, Salisbury, Cambridge, Oxford, etc for a day trip out of London.

We have been to Winchester which by the way is a very lovely little town that we love but wish to see something new, so this is out.

We plan to take a train that will take us directly to places without cab ride. We will not reconsider renting a car at all.

We are interested in area with history and charm to explore.

If possible we can spent a morning in one place and afternoon with another on the way back to London. If a city is a "must visit" that takes all day, we are game for just one city to go.

Which place is your favorite and why?

THANKS! I love this forum, so full of info!
