Itinerary advice Bath Salisbury Stonehenge Cotswolds Stratford Ludlow

Jump to last reply

My son and I are planning a September trip to England. I don't think we are renting a car as we are not sure we are brave enough to drive. Hopefully I can work out my hoped for plans using public transportation or day trips through tour companies. So far my thoughts are as follows:

Day 1 - morning arrival in Bristol, take train to Bath . Stay in B&B through Day 5
Day 2- Mad Max Tour to Stonehenge, Avebury, Lalock and Castle Combe - full day
Day 3- train to Salisbury, possibly find transportation to Stourhead
Day 4- Mad Max Tour to Cotswold - full day
Day 5- Bath
Day 6-Stratford upon Avon
Day 7-Ludlow - possibly coincide with food festival?
Day 8 - fly home from Birmingham?

I am not sure how to work out trip once we leave Bath. Does it make sense to
a. Stay in Stratford upon Avon and visit a town near it on day 7and forget Ludlow?
b. Base ourselves in Birmingham? and take train or bus to Stratford and Ludlow?

I will be grateful for your help.
