New England/Scotland itinerary

Jump to last reply

I posted in this forum about a month ago with a completely crazy itinerary. I have now revised it quite a bit-so what do you think of this?We will be there 9 days (not including flights)

Day 1: We get into Gatwick airport at 6 am.We would then take the Gatwick express into London and take a train into Durham. We then spend the afternoon unpacking and walking round a bit. We have relatives there so we would stay with them.

Day 2- Durham and Environs- Spend most of the day in Durham-Durham Castle an Cathedral-possibly Lumley Castle or Beamish museum

Day 3- Drive up to Crookham (our base)- see Alnwick Castle on the way up

Day 4- Drive into Edinburgh from Crookham and spend the day there. I would also like to see something like Stirling or St.Andrews if possible, but I don't really know-any tips?

Day 5-Leave from Crookham in late morning. Possibly see Lindisfarne and Hadrians Wall on the way down to Whitley Bay, where I'll have dinner with some relatives.

Day 6- Yorkshire Moors/Coast- We would drive down to Whitby, Helmsley and Rievaulx Abbey

Day 7- We have a few options here. Should we spend most of this day in either:
-York
-Haworth
-Stratford
-Lincoln
-Oxford
-Cambridge
-or we could go down to London early
We would then take a train from wherever we were to London for early evening

Day 8- London- Either:
Spend morning in Hampton Court Palace
Spend morning in Kew Gardens
Spend morning at V& A museum
Spend morning at Greenwich...you get the idea
...before spending the aft' in Knightsbridge- Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Kensington Palace + Hyde Park- not to mention possible Afternoon Tea

Day 9- Day trip
a few considered day trips include:
1) Bath, Salisbury + Stonehenge
2) Bath, Windsor + Stonehenge
3) Cotswolds- Tetbury, Chipping Campden, Bibury, and Stow-on-the Wold, as well as Stratford
4) Oxford, Warwick Castle, and Stratford
5) Leeds Castle, Greenwich, Canterbury and Dover
or we could do our own by ourselves: places include cambridge, oxford/stratford, bath, brighton (one or the other, obviously)...ok wyyy to much about day trps

Day 10- one last day in London= spend day at Westminster Area, Tower of London, St.Pauls _ Covent Garden
We leave the next day
Any suggestions for day trip? or what to do on day 7/8? or hotel options for london? thanks
