England: When and Where?

Jump to last reply

Two Seniors (71 and 75 but in excellent health) planning about a month in England. Had planned the Month of May or May/June , but now considering mostly June, if can find affordable fare. Friends and forums have warned not to travel in May when schools are on break or there are "bank holidays" as crowds are terrible. Is this true, and if so, is it mainly in London or also in the countryside? Also, I LOVE gardens and understand that they are especially beautiful in June. Agree or disagree with these thoughts?

Plans include maybe a week at beginning and at end of trip spend in London (our son and wife have just moved there 5 months ago). Would see sights, just enjoy all that's there, maybe side trips. Remainder of trip considering Cotswold area, Bath area (would love to get in on International Music Festival, late May), Exeter/Torquay area to explore the Jurassic Coast, on to Cornwall and especially go to Truro to experience the Minack Theater, the Eden Project, and whatever else presents itself.

I really need to get air soon, so will really appreciate any helpful or critical suggestions. We have never been in England and it is mind boggling to try to make sense of it all. We definitely do plan to go back off and on.

Minor detail! We will be dependent on public transportation, unless someone can give us some very convincing reason to have a car. We are not young anymore, and would be far less stressed using bus and train. The Cotswold area might be and exception.
Many thanks in advance.
