Planning a self drive tour of the uk next april

Jump to last reply

Hi I have read many comments through out various threads about how hard it is to travel around uk. We realise that we will not even scratch the surface of what there is to see and do, but following is our planned itinerary, bear in mind most of it will be spur of the moment decision of what to see and where to stay. But any tips on the absolute must see and do is more than encouraged
Arriving early easter Saturday at Heathrow, collecting a car and zig zagging our way to Cambridge for our first night
Day two working our way to York for next stop over, spending the majority of day three checking out the sights of York before heading off to Edinburgh for the next two nights
Next we are off to Inverness for our last scheduled booking, from here we are winging it!
Hope to go to Skye and take ferry to malig and make our way to fort William depending on how often we stop to take in the sights we may end spending two nights along the way before heading over to Belfast ( do we need to book ferry tickets in advance? As this will making spontaneous travel a bit tricky)
A night in the Belfast area then off along the ocean road towards the giant causeway and overnight around Londonderry
Next we will cut through to Dublin and one or two nights before taking ferry to Wales
Through the Snowden NP and Breacon on beacon NP an overnight stop somewhere then last day to Southampton via bath.
We dump the car and take a 7 day cruise to the Norwegian fjords, lastly we will spend four days and nights in London before heading back to oz
Hope to hear from those in the know what are some great places to see along the way, places to stay and places to eat
Cheers from down under
