Tips for first trip to UK? Edinburgh, Liverpool, London

Jump to last reply

Hello all! I'd love your thoughts and suggestions!

I'm going with my sister to the UK - it will be her first time in Europe! Trying to plot an itinerary as we only have 8 days abroad.

Aug 28th: Land in Edinburgh in the afternoon
Aug 29th: 1 day of Edinburgh catching the last day of Fringe
Aug 30th: 1 day of Edinburgh Castle and museums, then head to Liverpool in the evening by train
Aug 31st: 1 day in Liverpool, beatles and tate, then head to London in the evening by train
Sept 1st - 5th: 5 days/6 nights in London
Sept 6th: Last day, we have afternoon flights home

We have 2 nights in Edinburgh and 1 night in Liverpool. My sister thinks it's better to travel in the evenings to not waste daytime on a train instead of sight seeing, but I am afraid we will feel rushed in Liverpool.
Do you think we have enough time in Edinburgh and Liverpool?

Interests are arts and culture, the beatles, and exploring the cities and any main landmarks. Not interested in nature or sports.

Do you think we'd have time to tack on Stratford upon Avon or Oxford to our trip? Anywhere else we can squeeze in for a day out of the London allotment?

Thank you!
