First trip to England

Jump to last reply

Am starting to plan our first trip to England and Scotland in May of 2017--thinking about 2 weeks in each country.We are early 60's and enjoy walking around towns/cities, like to stay in hostels and aren't gourmet foodies. We like to rent cars so we have the ability to stop/go at our leisure.Have pieced together my England section and was hoping for some feedback on how it looks--have included mileage and driving times given on AA route planner.. We live in the US and are use to driving many miles each day to get somewhere....I know that the roads and speed limits in the UK are much slower..can I drive farther on some of the days and still see all of the sights without pushing it or is this a manageable itinerary?? Also need to keep in mind that we stop for the day in a place that has lodging for the night.

Day 1 Arrive London on Train from Edinburgh(am)--get rental car at train station--Drive from London to Canterbury to Dover 79 mi/2 hr
Day 2 Drive from Dover to Brighton to Portsmouth 138 mi. 3 hr 45 min
Day 3 Drive from Portsmouth to Winchester to Salisbury to Stonehenge to Bath 107 mi 2 hr. 38 min
Day 4 Bath to Avebury to Hermitage to Windsor to London 128 mi 3 hrs. 14 min.
Day 5-10 London (includes a day trip to Greenwich and Cambridge)

Will be adding Hadrian's wall and Durham to my Scotland section --am I missing anything in England that are must sees and close to where I am already planning on going??? Thanks in advance for all your help.
