Logistics of planning daytrips from London

Jump to last reply

I'm hoping you can help me figure out the best way to accomplish a few daytrips while visiting London on a leg of a multi-week trip.

It will be the first time to London for the majority of our group of 8. I have been many times already and would prefer to venture out on my own while they explore London proper.

I am interested in Bath and Oxford, mainly. Is it reasonable that I would treat these as true daytrips -- that is, waking up in the London hotel in the morning and training out and back the same day. Or would it be better to go from London to Bath then directly to Oxford without returning to London (by staying in Bath that night?)

I appreciate your thoughts. And if I'm missing an obvious daytrip destination, I would love to be advised! (I chose Bath becasue of its Roman roots and Oxford because I am a CS Lewis fan, if it helps.)
