Britain Itinerary Suggestions

Jump to last reply

Leaving in a few weeks for Europe, starting in Paris for five nights and then have 14 nights to spend in Britain. I intend to take Eurostar from Paris (transfer via Paddington in London) to Oxford for 2 or 3 nights, then to Hay On Wye 2 or 3 nights (my partner is book lover) to Stratford on Avon 2 nights to London for 5 nights.

Will pick up car before leaving Oxford. We like walking/hiking, all outdoor activities, nice dinners, outdoor food markets, occasional museum.
Would love to go to Edinburgh and/or Lake region but I'm afraid there's not enough time. We don't want to drive more than 3 hours between destinations.
Questions:
1.Are our choices of towns in Britain good? We're open to suggestions.
2. Is it an easy transfer from Eurostar to train to Oxford?
3. Would love to spend a day in Wales from Hay on Wye. Is this feasible?
4. Is there an alternative town close to Hay on Wye in which case make a short daytrip to Hay on Wye?
