Help needed with England & Scotland trip

Jump to last reply

Hi,

Three of us will be travelilng to London on Wed., March 20th - Monday, April 1st. We need a bit of help with our itinerary. I've already been to London countless times and my husband is more interested in seeing smaller towns & lots of pubs. Any recommendations are much appreciated.

1. Wed., March 20th - arrive in London @ 6am. Rent car from Heathrow and drive to Windsor. We are staying with my friend in Bristol for the next 3 nights, so we have the day at our leisure. need recommendations here -- I realize we'll be jetlagged.

2. Thursday, March 21st - Saturday am: home base in Bristol. Day trips to Bath, The Cotswolds, Stratford-upon-Avon. Any other suggestions?

3. Leave Saturday morning for either overnight in York or as an alternative, Chester. I need to be in Manchester by the next afternoon for a conference, so Chester is definitely closer. Any tips here would be appreciated.

4. Sunday - Wednesday morning: Manchester for conference. My husband & father will be touring around during the days.

5. Wed. morning leave for the Lake District. home base in Keswick. 2 nights.

6. Friday morning depart for Edinburgh. Detour to Stirling Castle perhaps? overnight in Edinburgh.

7. Saturday afternoon take train to London. 2 nights in London before we fly out on Monday.

Thanks for your help!
