Please help plan an England Itinerary!

Jump to last reply

DH and I have been debating where to take our next European adventure (and first with our toddler). My vote is to explore England, though DH is not quite as on board as I'd like, as we were in London in 2009 and he doesn't want to simply repeat a trip we've already taken. As such, I've been charged with developing an itinerary to sway him. So, I need help!

We will have 8 or 9 days of actual touring time, and though I'd be content to spend most of that time in London, that will not win over DH. On my mental list, I've thought that a rough itinerary (dream list?) would include two bases from which we can explore some or all of the following: Bath, the Cotswolds, a day trip to the seaside, Oxford and/or Cambridge (if you have a preference please chime in!), Yorkshire, the Lake District, and a day or two to satisfy my London desires at either the beginning or end of the trip.

As I review that, I know that it's probably pushing it to fit all of those into our allotted time, but if you could help me prioritize that would be ever so helpful. Or, if there is something glaringly obvious that I've left out, please chime in as well.

We would be traveling in the spring (April/May), we aren't opposed to renting a car vs train (or vice versa), and honestly, I'm not too concerned about planning toddler specific activities this early point because he's just as happy to be given the chance to run in the grass as anything else. However, for planning purposes, the Toddler will be 20 months or so at the time of travel.

As I mentioned above, I've thought that two bases would be good from which we could explore. In my head, I've thought that London would be one of them as I'd like to spend a day or two doing some activities that we've missed in previous trips, but I also know that some of the destinations listed above are hours apart.

Please help me sort out my craziness!
