Spend a week in UK or Crash Course of Europe

Jump to last reply

I'm happy to be here and hope you can help me. I'm haven't traveled alot and consider myself a novice traveler at best. However, my teenage daughter (14 years) is attending Oxford, England for summer school in July. She's never been to England or Europe and neither have I. I was planning to join her on her last day of school and the two of us could spend another week sightseeing and touring. This will be the last week of July and first week of August. My question is should we just plan to spend a week in UK or should we also try and fit in some other European cities?

I would love to visit all over, go to Paris, Ireland, Italy.... but we only have a week. On one hand I'm thinking if we focus on just visiting one place like the UK we might have a more quality time vs a whirlwind tour of Europe.

My daughter's program will allow her a visit to Stonehenge, a day in London. As much as I'd like her to show me what all she saw...I'm thinking it might be better to visit things neither of us has seen.

I have family that is likey moving to Paris next year, so I could get another trip in a year or so.

So...Maybe stick with the UK or whirlwind Europe? What shoudl I do?

Thanks ahead of time.
