UK and Scotland Family trip

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, I'm planning a trip for my family (mom, dad, bro-18 & sis-11) in August for about 3 weeks.

I've been to London twice so I know my way around it (they haven't though) but we wanted to visit other cities as well and also go to Edinburg.

I was thinking of 8 days in London and daily trips from there like Oxford, Stratford-Upon Avon, Cambridge with the Walking Tours since they were cheapest. Since hotels in London are more expensive than other cities, would you recommend going for the daily trips from there or perhaps staying in another city and doing them?

Can you also recommend other cities that would be good for visiting, what to do there and for how long? We have lots of places on mind but we don't know which would be best. There's Manchester, Liverpool, Cambridge (day trip or more?), Cardiff...I don't want to overwhelm them so perhaps a city or 2 max since we also want to go to Edinburg. Also, where should we stay in Edinburg and for how long?

We won't be driving so our itinerary should be something doable via tube and train.

If you have any tips on discounts for tours or hotels or anything it would be great. Too many questions, sorry but i appreciate the help :)

Thanks!
