First trip to England

Jump to last reply

Well I have spent lots of time refining my April 2017 trip after being told I was driving too many miles a day and that wouldn't leave any time to actually see the sights--so have listed below my proposed itinerary complete with mileage and listed times from AA road trip planner. Coming from the US each days driving below seems like a snail's pace but was told to double the times listed on the AA road trip planner and include at least an hour for each sight on the driving portion. Can I have my experts opinion of the England portion of my trip--thanks so much for your advise!!
