One week SW England for a group with diverse interests

Jump to last reply

My husband, brother and I will have a week together in the UK in July next year. We've been to the UK many times and have seen all the major "must-see" regions like the Lakes, the Cotswolds, Oxford, Yorkshire, Bath etc. We spent five weeks in London this year so don't need a city visit.

For this trip we're looking for an interesting country base for the week, with easy access to Heathrow and potential for day trips. Husband and I like museums and art; brother likes castles, forts and pubs and is not big on long walks. I'm extremely interested in fossil hunting on the Jurassic Coast.

I am thinking about basing ourselves in Winchester with day trips to Arundel Castle, Portsmouth, Lyme Regis, Fishbourne, Stourhead, Chideock, Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre, Avebury (we've seen Stonhenge).

This itinerary looks OK but is not exciting me. I'm very keen to get some other suggestions please.
