Last minute trip to UK - please help

Jump to last reply

Long story short, we found some very good airfare to London at the end of August/beginning of September and are contemplating booking a 10 day trip. This is very impulsive and not much time to plan, but we would like to make this happen. We have been to the UK several times and have spent a lot of time in London, not much in the countryside outside of the train from Paris-London whizzing along.

The plan would be to spend 4-5 days in London - we would probably use Priceline and get a 3-4 star in Kensington or Mayfair. We haven't been to the gardens, the zoo, might focus on outdoor stuff. What will the weather be like in early September?

After London, we will stop in Oxford, we have a friend's son at the university there. Where should we go after that? Not interested in driving in the UK, we will probably train it. Is BritRail a good option or would we be better off with public buses? Maybe see Windsor Castle, Stratford upon Avon, Stonehenge, that kind of thing. We like to structure our touring so that we have a couple of "down" days in between hard sightseeing in which to relax and chill out.

Any suggestions on hotels, restaurants, sightseeing, etc. would be very helpful and appreciated. Thanks!
