Not sure will be great in march , but definitely open to Paris for 3 days.>

cities like London, Paris, Edinburgh, etc are always good in any weather IME but exploring the countryside or even smaller towns can be a drag - you could bop over to Paris and spend 3-4 days and back to London to fly out. check www.eurostar.com for discounted return tickets on high-speed trains to and from Paris.

Paris in March can be nice - flowers starting to bloom - plus few lines at tourist sites. And good deals on hotels in off-season.

>>There has been an opinion where someone has mentioned to do Wales and Ireland ? <<

Both are nice countries -- we can't decide for you. But as it is you only have 2 nights in Edinburgh and 4 nights in London. Could you go to Wales - sure, Ireland? sure. But you are spending no time in Scotland other than Edinburgh, no time in any other part of England, and very little time in London.

It appears you are just throwing darts at a wall. I gently suggest you get a couple of guidebooks about the UK and Ireland. And decide what places sound interesting.

Wales and Ireland can by really dismal weather-wise and as many lures there are in rural areas you really do not have enough time to do either of them justic - though Northern Wales I guess around Conwy has several neat places in a small area-but again large cities IMO are much more fun in any kind of weather.

I don't understand. Are you going to London on day 8, then back to York? What does "London Paris" mean on days 11 - 13?

If you really want to see Glasgow, it's an easy day trip from Edinburgh.

Taking the Eurostar train from London to Paris is the quickest way, little over 2 hours city center to city center. No need to get out to the airport (either York or London), wait around for an hour or two, then, upon arrival, get yourself into Paris. Buy your Eurostar tickets as soon as possible for a significant saving.

This is very confusing. I think you have tried to post two options in columns to compare contrast. But I'm not sure.

Is this what you meant??
Option1
Day
1 London
2 London
3 London
4 London
5 Edinburgh
6 Edinburgh
7 Edinburgh
8 Northumberland
9 York
10 York
11 London
12 London
13 London
14 Return

Option 2
Day
1 London
2 London
3 London
4 London
5 Edinburgh
6 Edinburgh
7 Edinburgh
8 London
9 London
10 Paris
11 Paris
12 Paris
13 Paris
14 Return

If so -- I actually don't like either one since you are visiting London twice. It makes more sense to lump all you London days together

I have absolutely no clue what you are trying to convey, but there is no reason to go to London twice, if that is your intention.

In March I'd do the Paris one, York is lovely but probably wet and miserable, probably the same in Paris but ... it will be Paris

Can't you put your extra time inLondon before your tour - instead of after it? That would put all London days together and simplify the itinerary so you can go directly from Edinburgh to Paris.

York or Paris - no brainer for me, especially at that time of year as bilbo says.

We had a lovely time in Cornwall in March of 2014, and this year in March Lisbon, Portugal was lovely. I would think Rome would also be pretty nice in March.
