Itinerary help, England/Wales

Jump to last reply

My cousin and I are planning a trip to the UK for May 2015. Background: we spent 3 days in London and 12 days in Scotland in 2013. We plan several trips to the UK, so this is not a must see everything trip. We will not be driving, taking trains, buses, whatever.
For this trip we are allowing 10-11 days on the ground. We have several possible itineraries but this one is the front runner now, subject to more research and your helpful comments:
Day 1 fly into London
Day 1 arrive Heathrow, check into hotel or leave bags, tour St. Paul's
Day 3 day trip to Dover, see castle and hopefully a boat tour of cliffs
Day 4 tour British Museum and Palace of Westminster
Day 5 day trip to Stratford upon Avon
Day 6 train to Bath, tour bath
Day 7 Mad Max tour of Cotswalds, Stonehenge, Avebury, etc. departing from Bath.
Day 8 possible other Mad Max tour
Day 9 train to Caerleon
Day 10 Train to hotel near Heathrow, tour Hampton Court or Windsor Castle
Day 11 tour which ever one we didn't do the day before
Day 12 fly home
This will put us in 3 hotels, which we know is a lot, but we had SIX hotels on our previous trip. We pack light and can handle the rigors of moving around. We also prefer hotels over B&B's.
With almost all my previous trips I have concentrated on just one area with maybe a day or one overnight trip, but we are trying to make sure we see the things we are most interested in now as who knows what will happen in the future.
Suggestions welcome! Thanks in advance.
