UK fun With Harry Potter Fans - Starting of Itinerary Planning

Jump to last reply

I kept researching a trip to HP world in Orlando for the kids ...and kept hedging, I know it's great but something was keeping me from booking it. A few days ago I looked at DH and said what I really want to do is take them to England! We have dear friends to visit there, DH would love to spend 2 whole days at the British Museum of Natural History. My three kids are SUPER HP fans. We also had fun last Summer in Washington DC enjoying museums, urban sites, people watching. We ended up with a ton more miles than we thought this year and remarkably there are some not bad options for miles tickets in early June.....

Here is my idea.

Fly into London - 3 days with family friends - Warner Bros Studio convenient from their location
4-5 days in London - VRBO rental, walking around seeing some top sites, perhaps a musical

What I can figure out is a Scotland portion of the trip.

I'd love to see the Jacobite Train. I think we'd have fun in Edinburgh also for a few days.

Where to stay ahead of the train... Ft William? Go there straight from London (overnight train?) then on to Edinburgh... or to and fro from Edinburgh. After hustle and bustle of London it would be nice to have the quiet of countryside - highlands... but doesn't seem like Fort WIlliam is a place to stay. Could devote 2-3 days to this portion

2-3 days in Edinburgh and fly out open jaw from there

Alternately I could give up on our Scotland portion and add something else as a contrast/comparison to London. Perhaps Oxford or York. Then back to London to return home.

If Edinburgh stays on the list I'd also love Family hotel ideas for family of five (always tricky).

Happy New Year!
