Southern England itinerary

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a trip to England in the next year or two, hopefully to go with my mom. I want to focus on southern England. Our interests are gardens, history, architecture, cathedrals, beautiful landscapes, and art.

I have been to London before but my mom has not. As of right now, I would prefer using trains and buses to renting a car because my mom doesn't want to drive and I cannot drive due to nerve damage in my feet. However, we will decide about this. This itinerary has been created with public transportation in mind. We would probably go in either May or September.

I'm looking for opinions on my preliminary itinerary.

Fly into London, sleep 4 nights (so we would have 3 1/2 days there); I would really like to use one day to make a day trip to Hampton Court Palace. I have a particular interest in Henry VIII and Tudor England. I would go to Kew Gardens one day. If my mom wants to explore London on her own another day, I would also like to make a day trip to Canterbury to see the Cathedral. So many possible day trips from London!

Salisbury 2 nights: see the Cathedral and a trip to Stonehenge and Avebury on a tour excursion

Bath 2 nights

Oxford 3 nights, one of these days include day trip to Blenheim Palace or Windsor (if possible using public transportation

Back to London and fly home

Total amount of days we spend in England is tentative. Probably a little less than two weeks.
