Itinerary help for family with young kids

Jump to last reply

I am planning on traveling to England and Scotland with my wife and two kids (an 8 year old and a 3.5 year old). We are going to be in the UK from about July 18th to August 4th/5th. I want this vacation to be a relaxed trip rather than an attraction-packed hectic one, so I have planned the following itinerary and would appreciate input as to whether this is a good plan. Please feel free to suggest changes. Thank you all for your time and input.

Days 1-2 Arrive in London & spend time with family (Overnight London)
Day 3 AM flight to Inverness/Pick up rental car and drive to Isle of Skye via Loch Ness (Overnight Skye)
Days 4-5 Skye (Overnight Skye)
Day 6 Drive to Glencoe via Mallaig and Fort William (Overnight Glencoe/Fort William)
Day 7 Drive to Edinburgh via Stirling (Overnight Edinburgh)
Days 8-9 Edinburgh (Overnight Edinburgh)
Day 10 Morning train to York (Overnight York)
Day 11 Noon train to London (Overnight London)
Days 12-13 London (Overnight London)
Day 14 Early train to Legoland Windsor (Overnight Windsor)
Day 15 Windor Castle/Evening train to London (Overnight London)
Day 16 London or Day trip to Brighton (Overnight London)
Day 17 Train to Cotswolds via Oxford (Overnight Cotswolds)
Day 18 Cotswolds/Late train to London (Overnight London)
Day 19 Depart from London

We are debating between whether we should go to York and Cotswolds or just one of them. Which one is better for children if we were to do just one?

Please feel free to suggest any changes or places that are better suited to children.

Thanks,

Shehzad
