First time travelling Internationally - Seeking advice

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are starting to plan our first trip outside the United States, ever. We have traveled across much of the US but this will be the first time we've left its borders with a trip to the UK. We are thinking October of 2014.

We have a lot of questions, some of which may seem small and insignificant, so I'm looking for any insights/advice for a 10 day trip to the UK. My wife saw a location in Edinburgh which does Falconry for guests and it seems like it would be quite a unique and fun travel experience, therefore, its at the top of our list with about 3-5 days tentatively scheduled in.

We also would like to spend 2 full days in London seeing the sites, but are a bit uncertain what exactly we want to see of all the possibilities. Westminster Abby, Buckingham Palace, London Eye, and the Globe Theater (for me - would love to see a show there).

Questions -
1. What to do in-between London and Edinburgh? I know this is a broad question, but we really can't seem to decide as there are so many options. Wife has eyed a few things in York, while I'd love to see Stonehenge and Bath, perhaps even Canterbury.

2. Best way to travel between locations? - I've been reading about Bus and/or Trains, and while I love the idea of being able to see the country and not having to focus on driving a car in a complete strange roadway system, I've never made a trip without a car. A couple of questions immediately leapt to mind as I read an a suggestion about travelling after 5pm allowing a full day of sight seeing. Love the idea, yet wondering about luggage! Not sure I want to carry it around with me all day.

Any links to sites or other forum pages which may help guide us would be helpful as well. Thank you
