Planning a trip to England and Paris at Christmas Break

Jump to last reply

Hi. We are taking our two boys,aged 21 and 19 to England and France over their college break this Christmas. We will stay for two weeks and want to get in as much site seeing as possible, with some specific excursions. My son is a huge Fulham Soccer fan and we will want to attend a game at Craven Cottage. We will also want to make a trip to Bedford to show them where I grew up. Also to Stonehenge. In Paris, obviously The Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, but really not anything really specific because we have been there before.

We would like to do the Chunnel but I'm not familiar with it. Should we rent a car or simply take Chunnel all the way from London to Paris? I would like to fly into London and leave from Paris when we go back to Texas if not too expensive so we have enough time to see as much as possible. This will probably be the last trip we all take as a family with just our sons as they are growing up and doing things on their own.

My question is whether we have enough time to realistically do everything? I would love to be able to rent a car in Paris and just grand see some of the countryside.

Any recommendations with respect to any aspect of our trip, including best airlines, passes for Chunnel, etc would be very much appreciated.
