Tips for first trip to UK

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be visiting the UK in September of next year. We will be there about 14 days. We are empty nesters who like to visit the typical must see tourist locations but enjoy food/drink and nightlife in the evenings. We have never been to the UK and could really use some tips on the places to see, time needed, and the places to avoid.

Right now, we are thinking of flying to London from California and then spending the next 5 or 6 days in the Leicester area. Then taking a train perhaps up through the England to Edinburgh. Perhaps trying to stop in Bath, Bristol, Oxford and/or York on the way. We would then spend a few days in Edinburgh before flying to Paris for 3 days.

Would we be making a mistake with any of these stops or is there something hugely missing with this approach? We thought about flying to Edinburgh and the taking the train down to London before eventually getting to Paris via the Chunnel before heading home but there are no direct flights to Edinburgh.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
