Our family of 5 with 3 teenagers (age 13, 14, 15) is finalizing our England part of our trip to Europe. We will have 10 nights (June 8-18). Flying in and out of LHR.
I will ask more specific questions later about sight seeing but right now we are focusing on just lodging logistics.
We plan on staying in central London (Soho Covent Garden) for first 5 nights (Check in June 8, Check out June 13) to explore all that London has to offer.
We will take it easy on day 1 (June 8, A.M. arrival from Chicago)
Rest of the time, we will explore London and do a day trip to Cambridge.
Then we want to switch lodging for last 5 nights, possibly to Oxfordshire.
Last 5 days, we want to take day trips to the following:
Oxford University and all its surroundings
Bath - Maybe...
Harry Potter World - For sure but not sure if it makes better sense to do this while are in London?
We plan on relying on public transportation but we are also ok renting a car if needed.
Does switching lodging make sense?
Any suggestions are welcomed!
