Multi-Generational Great Britain Tour

Jump to last reply

In May of 2015 my two kids (will be 7 and 9), my parents (72 and 78), and I are planning on going to Great Britain. My mother is English so we'll need to see family in London and the Lake District. Beyond that, we though it would be fun to show my kids a bit of Ireland (where we need to see some in-laws in Dublin) and Scotland. The trip will be ~14 days. Obviously, I'm in the beginning stages of planning. I looked at some bus tour sites, but I am a bit concerned about all the sitting time. I worry my kids will be bore, glued to their electronics and miss everything out the window (which, arguably with high way driving, won't be much).
We want to avoid driving ourselves (we did that this year around Spain and it was exhausting for everyone) but have no issues with trains and public transport.

Any suggestions?
