Cardiff, London, Keswick, York & Oxford HELP leave in 4 weeks.

Jump to last reply

So for anyone who doesn't know ;-) my future son-in-law has been selected to play for Italy in the Rugby League World cup. Yes he is Australian with Italian heritage, so its a real achievement for him. It was only announced on the weekend, so we have four weeks to get this plan together.

The games will be;
Cardiff - Opening ceremony, Aus vs England & Wales vs Italy, Millennium Stadium Oct 26.
Workington - Scotland vs Italy Nov 3
Halifax - Tonga vs Italy Nov 10

The plan so far;
Depart London Oct 24, arrive London Oct 25. Meet up with dd & her in-laws, collect van & drive to Cardiff. Dh will be fine to drive, he's done it plenty of times before and we are flying B/class so will be reasonably well rested.
3 Nights at the Future Inn Cardiff, appears to be a walkable distance to stadium & Castle. Love some 'must dos' for our short time here?

Depart Cardiff Monday Oct 28 and head back to LHR to drop van off, dd's in-laws will be flying to Spain from here. Dh, dd & I will catch a tube into London for 5 nights, still trying to find an apartment that wont break the bank?
This will be trip number 6 or 7 for us, so it will be all about shopping (both daughters getting married next year) and wandering.
Saturday Nov 2 collect hire car and drive up to Keswick, its a 30 minute drive from there to the game in Workington. Dh & I will stay here for 4 nights, still to determine which B&B. Dd will probably head to Leeds to spend some time with her fiancé. This will give us 2 full days (arrival day, game + 2) to explore the Keswick area, love to hear suggestions? Interests are long walks, food, wine, photography & great scenery.

Depart Keswick Nov 7 for York, all the times we've driven in the UK we've never been here. We'll stay here for 4 nights, again suggestion of what to see & do would be great? We will travel to the third game in Halifax from here.

Depart York Nov 11 & drive to Oxford (again this is another place we've never been to). We will just have the one night here (I know, its not enough.......but I may not be back this way for quite some time) and then drive to LHR the next morning for our flight home at lunch time.

So there you have it, can't wait for your feedback.
