Final review of itinerary (London, Yorkshire, Paris)

Jump to last reply

Thanks for sharing your insight. We are a family of four -- husband, wife and two 13-year-olds. One daughter keen on traveling, the other fairly intimidated. We are not interested in churches or stuffy museums, and tend to cover most areas in half the time the guide books say. We're fairly active and fit, glad to walk and explore. We like nature and natural areas.

So here's the itinerary I've sketched out. London and Paris are must-sees for the rest of the family; Yorkshire is a must-see for husband and me.

Usually when we travel, we have one or two key destinations each day, and then whatever else happens, happens. We realize we won't see everything. We're OK with that.

So based on that, does this pace/proximity look realistic?

Day 1: arrive London a.m., Natural History Museum, walk-by look at Kensington Palace

Day 2: Tower of London (Crown Jewels/Beafeater Tour), maybe London Dungeon?

Day 3: Stonehenge/Bath (International Friends tour?)

Day 4: Buckingham Palace, Royal Mews, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, London Eye

Day 5: British Museum
p.m.: Eurostar to Paris (hotel by Jardin du Luxembourg)

Day 6: Eiffel Tower

Day 7: Louvre

Day 8: Catacombs
p.m.: fly to Leeds, drive to Thirsk

Day 9: Aysgarth or Jervaulx Abbey or Wensleydale or Middleham (or any combination of these that fits schedule)

Day 10: Thirsk unscheduled (whatever didn't get done on day before),possible short pony trek

Day 11: unscheduled
p.m.: train to hotel near London Heathrow

Day 12: depart

Thank you!
