First timers to the UK...where do we begin?

Jump to last reply

I would like a some beginner information for a first timer to the UK. DH & I are thinking of traveling to London, along with my dad, in late May/early June 2014. I know that is two years away but next year is Hawaii year for DH & I (we go every two years) and I'm obsessed with traveling so I need something to think about to keep me busy!

About us: In 2014, DH will be 33; I will be 32; my dad will be 52. We will be flying from Austin, TX. I'm thinking the trip will be 10 days not counting travel days.

I need beginner information because I don't know anything about London. When I think of Paris or Rome the main tourist sights come to mind but I'm at a loss with London. Fodorites, I need your help!

What main sights do you think we should visit? (Dad is a major British history buff.)
What area/neighborhood should we base ourselves at?
As for a hotel: I like b&b type places; if we stayed in a hotel I wouldn't want to pay more than $200 a night.
As for venturing outside of London, what do you recommend? Castles; Stonehenge; Bath; seaside town; etc.
What about venturing outside of England? Wales; Edinburgh for two days? (We could possibly stretch our trip to 12 days.)

Thanks in advance! Cheerio!
