First Cut England itinerary – your feedback requested

Jump to last reply

We were in England 20 years ago for our honeymoon and want to go back again in early June to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. On our honeymoon, we visited Lyme Regis, the Cotswolds, and Wales. We want to re-visit London and the Lake District plus see some other parts of England. Here’s the draft itinerary and some questions for the England experts. Thank you.

Fly to London Heathrow from DC

London- inc. day trip to Cambridge (3 days). Visit British Museum, Crystal Palace. Does it make sense to do Cambridge as a daytrip or should we drive there once we rent the car (see next step). It seems to be in the other direction of where we are ultimately heading.

Rent a car from Heathrow – we are too chicken to rent a car in the city and drive out from there, not being used to left-side of the road driving.

Stonehenge (1 day) – see it at dusk so we can get up close.

Oxfordshire (3 days) – see Oxford and driving tour of Midsomer area using Midsomer Trail maps on the tourist website. Maybe drive through Cotswolds a bit. We were disappointed with the Cotswolds 20 years ago as we did not see the Miss Marple environment we were hoping for. I remember being in Chipping Camden. Any thoughts?

Yorkshire (3 days) – see Yorkminster, Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors, Castle Howard. Are the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors good for day hikes? Good scenery? Not really played up in the guidebooks compared to Lake District.

Hadrian's Wall (1 day) – do we need to stay the night here or can we just do it on the drive from Yorkshire to the Lake District.

Lake District (3 days) – follow some Wainwright walks.

Manchester- stay close to airport for the night. Drop off car. Would this be better than driving all the way back to Heathrow?

Fly home from Manchester to DC
