London & Area Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

My DH and I will be flying to London in early Sept and have 11 nights/12 days to explore the area. We were thinking of 5 nights in London and 5 nights split between Bath, the Cotswolds and maybe Windsor or Oxford (the last night will be at Heathrow airport). Does this sound like the appropriate amount of time for each area?
We have been to London many years ago for 1.5 days and only saw the Royal London area.

We were thinking of this itinerary:
Arrive London and stay in central London close to restaurants, shopping but not too touristy (still researching areas) and spend 5 days/nights in London. (Any suggestions on best areas to stay)
Leave on day 6 and take train to Bath for 2 nights. Day 1 will be spent in Bath and day 2 we would pick up a car in Bath and tour the towns nearby including Avebury, Wells, Salisbury.
On day 8 leave for the Cotswolds and spend 2 nights in one of the villages, using 2 days to visit the villages.
On day 10 drive to Oxford and Windsor or maybe Newbury if we can get tickets for Highclere Castle and overnight in one of these towns.
On day 11, spend the day touring the castle and then drive to the airport in early evening.

Does this itinerary sound good? What change would you make?
Would it make sense to pick up the car in London instead of Bath and drive to Windsor on the way to Bath?
How easy is it to pick up a car in London (rail statiion or city center location) and drive out of London?
We have driven all over Europe but never in Great Britain so need to get used to driving on the left side of road.
