So I'm attempting to plan a trip to the UK and Europe next April/May with my mum and my boyfriend. We're restricted to about 6-7 weeks (which sounds a lot but barely covers the itinerary I've be working on). Basically I'm now trying to figure out which places to cut down/cut out of the trip because we need to lose some days and also I'm concerned that there might be way too much to do in the time we've got and I don't want the trip to be overwhelming. In terms of interests, I'm mostly looking for awesome historic architecture and landmarks, special sites etc. I'm more of an up and go adventurer kind of person, but my mum and boyfriend would prefer the trip to be more leisurely. I would really appreciate any suggestions for places to cut out or places to swap etc. Thanks in advance!
