Some background: I'm a late-sixties, solo, female traveler. I grew up in England, although it has been many years since I lived there. My recent trips have mostly been about family and London, and this time I want to spend more time in the countryside. I won't drive, and I would like to get some walking in - two to four hours, not rugged, and not too much elevation gain. My interests include architecture, history, arts and crafts, and scenery.

I'll arrive from the US at Heathrow on a Thursday morning, after not sleeping in economy class. I have room reservations for all of this, all but the university ones can be canceled. While I'll be visiting Dorset, which I think previously I've only driven through, I am not a Hardy fan, although I am an Austen fan.

Bournemouth (1) By coach, principally to break the journey south and recover from jet lag. Possibly visit Russell-Cotes, evening fireworks in Poole?

Lyme Regis (3) By train and bus. Would like suggestions for walks to vist the cliffs. Have read that the Coast Path in this area is in poor shape.

Weymouth (3) By bus. Considering visits to Lulworth and Abbotsbury.

Oxford (4) By train. Sleep Christ Church. One day to visit family. Botanic Gardens and revisit Ashmolean. Tour of Radcliffe and Bodleian. Maybe train to Charlbury for a walk in the Cotswolds - flanner posted a link on another thread - or is there a good walk along the river?

Worcester (4) By train. Visit Gloucester and Hereford and possibly Tewkesbury. Walks?

Shrewsbury (1) By train. Ludlow was too expensive... Malvern Hills?

Conwy (4) By train. One day for Conwy and Llududno (Great Orne - nostalgia). One day for Anglesey - Beaumaris Castle and Plas Newydd. Possble trip by train and narrow gauge railway to Porthmadog/Portmeirion and back through Caernarfon (have seen the castle more than once). Bodnant Gardens.

Chester (2) By train. Any boat trip possibilities?

Spend August Bank Holiday weekend with my elder sister, arrive by train, leave by coach.

Cambridge (3) Sleep Sydney Sussex. Visit Ely. Visit Sandringham and/or Audley End. If i walk to Grantchester can I get a bus back?

London (3) Sleep LSE Grosvenor House. Any exhibitions or plays of note? It will be Sep 2-5. Anyone in town for a mini-GTG?
