English countryside itinerary help

Jump to last reply

We are just beginning to plan a trip to Castle Donington, which is northwest of Leicestershire, Derby, England. My family traces its ancestry to this village so 6 of us--my 75 year old parents, brother and his wife, husband and me--are headed there in April. We plan to spend two or three days in London since my DF has never been there and then hope to rent a vehicle that holds six and drive to Castle Donington. We will spend a couple of days there visiting the Church and key house that are connected to the family, see the town museum, and hopefully connect with the village. From there, we will have a few days to explore central England. We could move around a bit and then will need to return to London for our flight home. We would love suggestions. Our interests are varied: we would enjoy local fairs or festivals, historic sites, memorable landscapes and local pubs and eateries.
