Input on England, Scotland & Ireland

Jump to last reply

We are going to be in Europe for 6 mo. The last potential 3 mo. will be in England, Scotland and Ireland. We're in our late 60's and not too interested in hiking but site seeing and food. Our grown children will be with us for awhile and we will be arriving from Amsterdam at Gatwick. Planning to pick up a car, visit Stonehenge and then likely staying in Upton Noble for 3 days in early Jan. See Bath, etc. Then onto the Cotswolds (where we've been before 20 yr. ago though) for another 3 days to visit cute villages, Stratford, etc., then back to Gatwick, maybe visiting Oxford and Windsor Castle on the way, to drop the car and take a train into London for 4 days with our kids. They fly back home then and we're on our own. I'm thinking we'll stay at least 2 days more in London. But the rest of our trip is up in the air. Since it will be Jan., I'm wondering where, if any place, we should visit on our way to Scotland. We've been to York on our earlier trip.

If there's no especially interesting spot worth a Jan. visit, then I think we will take a train from London to either Edinburgh or Glasgow. Likely rent cars for the rest of Scotland and then again in Ireland. We can stay until end of Mar. but, having been on the road since Sept. by that point, I'm thinking about maybe 10-15 days in both Scotland and Ireland. Given the time of year, any suggestions about what places we should or should not try to see?
