More trip itinerary tweaking for trip next May

Jump to last reply

So, after looking at our budget and realizing that we need to narrow our original plan, we are going to, for this trip, stick with London and York and save driving to and staying in Edinburgh for another time. (I am keeping a folder with all of the great advice you gave me about the drive from York to Edinburgh, though!)

We want to have time to do a day trip to the Cotswolds, see Hampton Court, and Windsor Castle. Also, on our hope to do lists are: Globe Theater tour, London Eye, Tower of London, the British Library, British Museum, St. Paul's, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Hampstead Heath, a market, visit the parks, Imperial War Museum,Victoria and Albert Museum......

Then there's York. My daughter wants to spend at least a full day and maybe two, so we will want to spend the night. My question is, would it be better to fly into LHR from WAS airports and then immediately go to York by train, do our 1.5- 2 days there, then train back to London for the 6-7 days or start in London first, train to York and come back to fly out of LHR? Is there any advantage of doing before the other?

Thank you all for being so patient as we sort through our plans! And for the wonderful advice you constantly are providing everyone here on the forum!
