Need Oxford/London/Normandy/Paris itinerary advice

Jump to last reply

Hello all. I have been planning a 10 night trip to Oxford/London/Normandy/Paris for over a year, and I think I need some help. Here's where the itinerary stands now, the trip is in late Feb 2013. We have been to both London and Paris before, but never to Oxford or Normandy. I am wondering if I am giving enough time to see the D-Day sights and some of the French countryside. I am wondering if I should take a day from Oxford or skip London in order to give 1 more day to Bayeux. I was trying to break up the train travel into chunks, rather than try to get all the way from England to Bayeux in one exhausting day.

Any advice appreciated. I am driving my husband insane asking his opinion!

Day 1: Oxford Arrive Heathrow, train or bus to Oxford.
Day 2: Oxford - College siteseeing
Day 3: Oxford - Blenheim palace
Day 4: London - Train from Oxford to London. Tickets to see a play that night (Helen Mirren!).
Day 5: Paris - Eurostar from London to Paris in AM. Sightseeing.
Day 6: Bayeux - Train from Paris to Caen. Pickup rental car. See Caen Museum on the way to Bayeux.
Day 7: Bayeux- Guided D-Day tour
Day 8: Bayeux - Tour around cider country (Pays d'Auge) in car
Day 9: Paris - Drop car in Caen, train to Paris
Day 10: Paris - Paris sightseeing
Day 11: Early flight home
