question for janisj and other anglophiles

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are in the process of planning and scheduling our trip to the U.K.

We plan to fly into LHR and then take the high speed train to York and on to Edinburgh. After that we plan on returning to London and using London as our base for day trips to Oxford, Cambridge, Bath and Windsor.

When we read the Fodors travel guide it recommends a full day in Windsor to see the castle and then the town itself. From what I have read the castle tour is half day. Is there enough to do in Windsor to warrant spending the rest of the day and possibly overnight there ? Also, since we are there should we see Stonehinge ? The idea doesn't really excite me.

I should add that we will have twelve days in the U.K. with a day and one half in York and two and one half days in Edinburgh including time on the train.

Thanks for all of your help
