One Month Itinerary to the UK

Jump to last reply

I am planning a one month solo trip to the UK from May 18 to June 18. I have a rough idea of my itinerary, and I am looking for comments and suggestions. I will be using public transport except for a day in The Cotswolds, as that area seemed difficult to explore efficiently via train/bus. This is my first trip to the UK, but I have been to other locations in Europe several times. My main interests are historical/cultural attractions, architecture, gardens, markets and quaint villages. I appreciate scenary, but I really do not want to do much hiking as I will be alone.

Here is my rough outline:

London
*Day Trip to Canterbury
*Half Day Trip to Hever Castle (I am mad for all things Tudor!)
*Day Trip to Windsor

Bath
*Day Trip to Salisbury and Stonehenge

Oxford
*Day Trip to Stratford-upon-Avon
*Excursion to Blenheim Palace
*Rent a car for the day to explore towns in The Cotswolds (Bourton-on-the-Water, Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden and Broadway)

Edinburgh

Hexham
*Hadrian's Wall
*Roman Forts and Museums

York
*Considering day trips to Castle Howard and/or Fountain's Abbey.

Cambridge

Return to London for the night before departure.

1. Have I missed anything or do I have anything in this itinerary that you would delete? And is this doable in a month?
2. Should I stay in Salisbury or is the day trip from Bath sufficient?
3. Should I rent the car for two days instead of one to explore The Cotswolds? And will it be difficult to find parking in Oxford when I return to the hotel?
4. Should I stay in Carlisle instead of Hexham?
5. Would you do one or both of the potential York day trips to Castle Howard and Fountain's Abbey? Is there another beautiful "ruined" abbey that is more easily accessed from York or is Fountain's Abbey not to be missed?
6. How would you allocate the 30 nights among the above locations?


Thanks for your time and assistance!
