University visit this fall, critique itinerary please

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'm hoping to tap into the knowledge here. My daughter is interested in attending university in England, and we've narrowed down her top three choices (understanding, of course, that they may change and will depend a lot on scholarships and general finances).

We've been to England before, so this will be less of a touristy trip and more of a "business" trip -- definitely budget-minded. We're used to traveling by backpack and staying in hostels ... nothing fancy needed, we'd rather put that money toward her education later.

Thoughts on this schedule, then? It is a bit of zig-zagging, but train travel is less money (and often less time) than the open-jawed flights I checked into.

Day 1 (Sun): depart pm
Day 2 (Mon): arrive LHR am/settle into hostel
Day 3 (Tue): train up to Leeds/settle into hotel
Day 4 (Wed): uni visit #1 in Leeds
Day 5 (Thu): uni visit #2 in Huddersfield
Day 6 (Fri): unscheduled
Day 7 (Sat): train back to London/settle into hostel (same hostel as before)
Day 8 (Sun): uni visit #3 just north of London
Day 9 (Mon): unscheduled
Day 10 (Tue): depart LHR am

Many thanks for your feedback.
