First Time Visit to UK - 3 Weeks Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

Hello! Let me preface my itinerary question with this – neither my husband nor I have ever been to Europe. We recently returned from our first trip international trip where we traveled to Japan – I found everyone in the Japan forum to be so helpful in planning the logistics of our trip. As someone new to European traveling, I am hopeful to receive similar opinions and advice in planning our first ever trip to Europe. For this trip we have chosen to do a self-drive tour of England, Wales, Scotland and hopefully Ireland.

A little background about the type of travelers we are. We are in our late 20s and enjoy a little bit of everything – sightseeing, history, nature, food, culture, adventure, hiking, etc. However, we are not so much into nightlife and would prefer waking up early to explore over staying out late to party. We are hoping to have a well-rounded trip of the UK that includes part nature and part city. We’d like to see some of the big cities, charming little villages, and the countryside.

Here is my rough-draft itinerary along with researched travel time and distances for each day.
Trip Date: July 2017, 3 Weeks

Day 1: Arrive in London, Overnight in London
Day 2: Full Day in London, Overnight in London
Day 3: Full Day in London, Overnight in London
Day 4: Rent car, visit Windsor Castle and Stonehenge, Overnight in Bath (Driving: 3.5 Hours, 120 Miles)
Day 5: Roman Baths, Castle Combe Village, Overnight in Bath
Day 6: Drive through Shropshire to Snowdonia, Overnight in Snowdonia (Driving: 4 Hours, 200 Miles)
Day 7: Full Day in Snowdonia, Overnight in Snowdonia
Day 8: Drive to Conwy, Overnight in Conwy (Driving: 1.5 Hours, 60 Miles)
Day 9: Drive to Manchester, Overnight in Manchester (Driving: 1.5 Hours, 80 Miles)
Day 10: Full Day in Manchester, Overnight in Manchester
Day 11: Full Day in Manchester, Overnight in Manchester
Day 12: Drive to Lake District, Overnight in Lake District (Driving: 1.5 Hours, 80 Miles)
Day 13: Drive to Edinburgh, Overnight in Edinburgh (Driving: 3.5 Hours, 150 Miles)
Day 14: Full Day in Edinburgh, Overnight in Edinburgh
Day 15: Full Day in Edinburgh, Overnight in Edinburgh
Day 16: Flight to Galway, Ireland
Day 17: Ireland
Day 18: Ireland
Day 19: Ireland
Day 20: Ireland
Day 21: Ireland
Day 22: Flight out of Dublin, Ireland

*Must-Haves for this trip: Minimum 2 full days in Manchester to visit my extended family. Some time spent in Shropshire area, even if just for afternoon (husband’s family has ties to this area).

I know this is a lot of driving, and I don’t know how driving in the UK compares to driving in the US. Is there a more manageable way of accomplishing these sites in the given time? We don’t mind driving and would enjoy seeing the countryside, but we don’t want to spend ALL of our time driving either! Please let me know if you have any recommendations. Also am I missing any must see destinations? Are there places that I have in my itinerary that could be left out?

Thanks in advance!
