"Tom, You Bloody Idiot! Maitai Needs Help On England

Jump to last reply

I've been playing Beatles' songs every night after Tracy falls asleep, and I guess my subliminal message worked, because this morning she said, "Let's go to England this autumn."

After saying, "OK," I have been looking at a tentative two-week itinerary, and as is my usual state, I am now totally confused, so any help you can give me would be appreciated.

My initial plan is to fly to London and spend six or seven nights there. I then thought we might take the train to Bath, rent a car and explore Bath and the Cotswolds, before returning back to London. Is there anywhere else in that general area we could/should explore? Stonehenge perhaps (or is that better as a day trip from London)? Oxford? Stratford-Upon-Avon? We would have four or five nights for that part of the trip.

I also know that while in London, there are some day trips we could take like Windsor Castle or Leeds Castle. What other day trips by train might you recommend? After a quick look at areas to stay, I am leaning early toward South Kensington area. Thoughts? Hoping to find something for $200 a night or cheaper. Maybe an apartment if we stay seven nights. Lodging suggestions welcome, too.

Thanks and Tally Ho!
