England base/s for 6 days (part 2)...need final nudge! Please...

Jump to last reply

I have already posted a thread a while ago ...but now that our tours have been cancelled, daughter and I are on our lonesome in England and need to finalise our itinerary
Here's what we have so far:
Jan 20: arrive Heathrow 6am...booked in at Premier Inn Leicester Square for 7 nights but havent paid yet so can be cancelled
we plan to do all manner of things LONDON ...and may even venture out to CANTERBURY COTSWOLDS BATH as day trips from our base in London

Now... we have ...5 more nights ( sat 1st feb is already booked back in London)
Mon 27 Jan ( our tour through England was supposed to start then ) til Saturday 1st Feb to fill in

At first I thought itd be nice to base ourselves in YORK for say 3 days (catch train from London) then catch train maybe to BRISTOL for another 2 nights before returning late afternoon Saturday 1st Feb to meet husband in London ( just for the night cos we three are then flying to Dublin the next day at around 2pm )

but ive just hung up from chatting to a travel agent who suggested maybe using LEEDS as a base instead of Bristol ( cos Bristol is fairly close to London and anything like Bath can be done from our base in London...right?)

I dont know whether to base ourselves in York or just do trips from Leeds out to York and wherever else people recommend?

WE WONT BE HIRING A CAR ...so the moors and dales and lakes district are out I guess and it's winter anyway..

So basically...do i extend our stay in Leicester Sq London to incorporate tours/ independent traint trips to Bath, Cotswolds, Oxford..etc
and then move somewhere to the north to access YORK ( definitely want to see it )

OR do i divide up the remaining 6 days/ 5 nights - 3 and 2 between Leeds and somewhere else?

The idea is to really minimise lugging our baggage on trains....

oooooh...Im leaning towards London and Leeds now...say 9 in London and the rest in Leeds?
Is there a nicer town than Leeds to stay in but one that still has good fast train access to the tourist hubs? ( we love history )

Thanks so much ..any advice would be very much appreciated...I have to start booking accommodation this week I think!
Cheers
Lanejohann
