We would love your input, tips and ideas for our 10 day England itinerary.
We are seasoned travels and have done a mixture of backpacking trips and whirlwind tours as well as long stays in apartments in big cities, such as Rome. We enjoy walking, open air markets, hiking, libraries, the occasional cathedral, church or castle or historic building or museum, Harry Potter and British Murder Mysteries (such as Poirot, Miss Marple, Midsomer Murders and Rosemary and Thyme). We realize 10 days is not enough time, but we hope to return again. At this point we plan to rent a car for portions (from London or outside Oxford) and can combine with taxi/train. We are traveling in June. Note: We could also do this same itinerary in reverse, especially if there are routes or reasons to do so. Thank you all so much in advance.
