England Wales & Scotland 14 day Itinerary

Jump to last reply

It seems that my first attempt of an itinerary was a bit too zealous , given travel times and proper time to explore. Feedback is greatly appreciated.

I arrive in London and if I planned a day to recover from travel, I'll have 16 days to explore England, Wales and Scotland (by car or train) prior to flying to Ireland for 6 days in Kinsale, Ireland. I plan to take day trips via car from Kinsale and fly out of Dublin.

I have absolutely NO idea what is realistic to expect to see. I can skip Wales (many forums suggest) if necessary. I like the idea of using a handful of spots as a base to take day trips from. What if we were to leave from London (after a few days) and make our way up to Scotland and fly from Edinburgh to Dublin?

I really don't want to spend more than 3-4 nights in London because we would like to explore other parts. We love history, landscape beauty and architecture (in that order) & would like to avoid the overrated places (Don't need to see the Downtown Abbey).

Anyone have any ideas about the following itinerary? There are two open days that can be filled in anywhere.

September 4 Arrive LONDON, sleep LONDON
September 5: LONDON
September 6: LONDON
September 7: LONDON (day trip?)
September: 8 Travel STONEHENGE/BATH, sleep BATH
September 9: Travel COTSWOLDS, sleep BATH
September 10: Travel OXFORD, sleep STRATFORD-UPON-AVON
September 11: Travel WARWICK, sleep STRATFORD-UPON-AVON
September 13: Travel YORK, sleep YORK
September 14: sleep YORK
September 15: Travel EDINBURGH, sleep EDINBURGH
September 16: Day Trip, sleep EDINBURGH
September 17: sleep EDINBURGH
September 18: Open
September 19: Open
September 20: Travel to Kinsale for 6 days & fly out from Dublin
