England in November - Comments on Itinerary?

Jump to last reply

We are going to England in early November to visit relatives and to do some touring. Us = late 60s, like to walk (even in cloudy, damp, drizzly November weather? ... maybe), like exploring Norman cathedrals, pubs, museums and all that. Have been several times to England but we have added new places on the itinerary below. We will travel around by bus and train. We would welcome your comments, ideas, and/or cautions.

Nov 5: arrive London Heathrow 7 a.m. and take bus to Oxford
Nov 5-6-7: Oxford including one full day out to Blenheim; plan to stay at The Buttery (any comments on this one?)
Nov 8-9: train to Castle Cary and then taxi few miles to Wells; Saturday evening concert in Wells Cathedral--Brahms Requiem and Vaughan Williams Lark Ascending (cannot wait for this!); Sunday afternoon concert in cathedral of Faure's Requiem
Nov 10: Worcester - we know it's not on many travelers' radar but this is for family reasons
Nov 11-12: Birmingham - see comment above, ditto
Nov 13-14-15: London - have been several times before; plan to stay at Premier London County Hall unless I hear disturbing comments from you about this hotel
Nov 16: depart from Heathrow

Many thanks for your thoughts.
