Travel Dates to Avoid

Jump to last reply

We are in the planning process for our trip to England and Scotland. We are hoping to visit in May or June 2017 and are looking at plane tickets. Places we will visit: London, Bath, Cotswolds, road trip from Cotswolds through Wales to Manchester, Lake District, York, Edinburgh. We are very flexible on dates (but we've heard late May and early June are great times to visit).

Do we need to avoid certain bank holidays or school holidays? I noticed that Summer break 2017 (half term) is from May 29 - June 2 and May 29 is Spring bank holiday. Should we avoid these dates? We were looking at dates roughly from May 16 - June 3 until we noticed the school break and bank holiday.

If we really should avoid these dates, then our next options are May 9 - May 27 or June 6 - June 24.

Given that we are flexible, which option do you think is the best in terms of weather, scenery, crowds, daylight hours, etc.

Thanks!
