Itinerary help needed! UK

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip this July to the UK along with our 2 girls aged 14,7
Below is the plan i roughly made.
Fly into London Heathrow
London 5 nights
1 day a trip out of London either to Oxford/salisbury/bristol
Travel by train to Windermere - 2 nights
take a lake tour /walk around ,lake cruise etc
Travel by train to Edinburgh - 2 nights
Fly out of Glasgow airport
Is this a doable trip?are the number of days in london sufficient to fit in a day trip also.
We would like to visit an working farm (for the smaller child).Any suggestions near london for the same?
Is it difficult to travel from Edinburgh to Glasgow international airport by train as there will be luggage also.
Windermere chosen coz of proximity to the train station as we wont be renting a car and prefer public transport.Is it good decision or should we stay at Ambleside or Bowness or kensick.Is moving about these towns possible with public transport.(buses).
Also for the day trip out of london which is a must see - Bristol,or oxford or ,bath
Distance wise which is nearest?
thanks very much.
