Tweaking our 3 week itinerary - suggestions?

Jump to last reply

I received great feedback on this forum a couple of months ago regarding a 3 week itinerary for myself, mom and my 11 year old son. The version that rose to the top was:

5-7 days in London
2 nights York (arrive by train from London)
7 nights by car from N. Yorkshire, through Northumberland (with visits to Hadrian's Wall, Alnwick Castle, coast and more) to Edinburgh
Edinburgh several nights, day trips or multi-night trip with Rabbie's Trail Burners

Great itinerary, right?

But - Mom really wants to see a bit of Wales, too. I've been researching and dreaming about this trip for a long time, and looking back in earlier posts, realized I also received advice on an itinerary including Wales some time back. I'm cognizant of avoiding the "trying to see it all" mentality. However, mom is viewing this as her last big trip before retirement forces her to reign in the spending :-(, and I really want this to be special, so I'm trying to figure out how to incorporate Wales and still not run us all ragged.

Here are alternatives as I currently see it:

Start in London (with side visit to friend in Winchester), train to Oxford or Chester to pick up a car (if Oxford, drive through Cotswolds), drive to North Wales, then to York, visit aunt near Whitby, then up through Northumberland and ditch car in Edinburgh, take a tour with Rabbie's Trail Burners, depart Edinburgh.

Or: Start in London, base in Cotswolds for a few days and visit South Wales from there, then drive to York, visit aunt in N. Yorkshire, drive through Northumberland and end in Edinburgh.

Any thoughts/suggestions?
