quesQuestion concerning timing of Scotland/Wales trip

Jump to last reply

We are a party of 8 hoping to travel from Houston to Scotland and Wales via London and Edinburgh. In the US, our Independence day (7/4) and labor Day (9/5) holidays will both fall on Mondays in 2016, so we can engineer a trip that will go from a Saturday 2 weeks prior, through the holiday day, allowing 17 days of travel with only 10 days taken off work. So our choices are essentially traveling late June or late August. Cost, conflict with waves of other tourists, and ease of bookings are considerations. I assume airfares would be a bit less around Labor day, but I also assume the British High tourist season in August would make bookings problematic. Is this true? Or does the British tourist season wear out by late August? Would it be reasonable to assume that if we travel in Scotland during the last week of June/1st week in July we may just get ahead of the worst of the tourist season? Any considerations would be most appreciated.
