Book club trip to England

Jump to last reply

I am firming up my book club trip this June to England. Can any of you familiar with the area let me know if I have things in a sensible order and time frame? I would love to fit in a stop to Highclere Castle- where would that fit best? This group of travelers wants to see a lot- for many this will be the only trip so we are packing a lot in. We are concentrating on literary sights- lots of Austen, Hardy, Fowles, Bronte, Shakespeare etc.. We have a walking tour in Lyme Regis booked already. Suggestions for new stops, places that we should eliminate, do I have travel times accurate? We will have several days in London prior to this next leg listed.

Sunday, June 9th- Bath- Roman Baths, Jane Austen Center, free walking tour. Stay in Bath.

Monday, June 10th-Pick up rental car. Shaftesbury, Sturminster Newton, Woodsford Castle. Stay in Dorchester.

Tuesday, June 11-Lyme Regis Day- We meet our walking tour at 11 in Lyme Regis. Afterwards we have the Jane Austen Memorial Garden, the Cobb. Drive back by way of Lulworth Cove. Stay night in Dorchester.

Wednesday, June 12- Dorchester- Max Gate, Athelhamptom House, Clouds Hill. Stay night in Dorchester.

Thursday, June 13- Chawton/Winchester . Start in Winchester, then 27 miles to Chawton to the Jane Austen House. Drive 100 miles to Woodstock for the night.

Friday, June 14- Oxford/Cotswolds Day- Stay in Woodstock again.

Saturday, June 15- Short drive ( 30 min) to Stratford Upon Avon. Explore Shakespeare Country- Anne Hathaway's house, birthplace, Mary Arden House. Leave late afternoon for the 2.5 hour drive to Haworth.

Sunday- June 16- Haworth- The Full Bronte- Stay the night again there. Might do a pop over to Hebden Bridge?

Monday, June 17- Drive south to Chesterfield for the Chatsworth House or Haddon Hall. Continue on for an evening arrival at Heathrow.

Tuesday- flights home
