York or Lake District?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a 15-day vacation for my family of four (2 adults and children ages 11 and 13). This will be the first time our children have travelled outside of the US. With 13 potential travel days to work with, I was thinking of this: London (5 nights), ___? (3-4nights), Edinburgh and surrounding area (4-5 nights).

I have countless questions, but first I'm looking for suggestions for the middle part of our journey. There are so many wonderful places to visit and I am realistic that we won't be able to visit even a fraction of them. I am looking at York or the Lake District as two potential options. After spending time in London, it would be nice to find a place with plenty of outdoor recreation (hiking, etc.), history, and of course family-friendly activities.

We will be traveling late June through early July. Any suggestions or recommendations are greatly appreciated.
