UK in the Beginning of 2016

Jump to last reply

Yes that said 2016 , it is not that far away is it? Well I am looking on taking my wife to the UK in 2016. I was looking at the 1st quarter time frame. Why, well off season, ie. cheaper flights, better hotel rates, less people, easier to get time off work.

My current plan looks as follows. Orlando, Florida to Chicago O'Hare to London Heathrow. 3-4 night in London, looking for bigger American style hotel. From there up to York for a night or two by train (don't trust myself driving). From there to Edinburgh for a night to two, then back to London for a possible night then back to Chicago then back to Florida where we live.

Ok let me try to pre-answer some questions. Leaving from Chicago to London vs Orlando, Lower rates from chicago, more airlines, more options. More direct flights. Why the cities, Why not? I always wanted to go to Scotland. Yes we are aware it may be cold and wet. We lived in Chicago for 30+ years, cold and wet does not bother us.

This is her first overseas trip, so nothing to over the top. Anything I should add to remove? In York and Scotland I am thinking of smaller B&B type hotels. Any suggestions? Will they be closed for the season? I am thinking I can go less expensive on the hotels, and have more spending money. Possible a serviced flat in london?

Thanks for the feedback!
