We (single mom, 14 and 16 yrs boys ) are visiting UK for 11 or 12 days.
I would really appreciate your suggestions on our itinerary. We can extend our trip for a few extra days if necessary . This is what I was thinking :
London 3 nights (one of the days : Cotswold day trip)
Brighton 1 night (have to do Brighton as we move there next year)
Isle of Wight: 2 nights
Oxford : 2 nights
Edinburgh: 2 or 3 nights nights
Fly out Of Edinburgh
———— breakdown something like this——
3 nights in London:
Day 1 to 2 : buy Oyster card and view the main LONDON attractions.
Day 3: day trip to Cotswold and if weather is good do a walking tour of a village or a cycle tour.
Day 4: Brighton: 1 night .we have to go to brighton so
Arrive on day 4, check out schools (we move to Brighton next year), sleep over
Day 5: Brighton schools etc. sleep Isle of Wight.
Day 6: Isle of Wight: Castle of Carisbrooke, Yarmouth, The Needles. Sleep in Isle of Wight.
Day 7: Public transport to Oxford . Tour Oxford . Sleep in Oxford 2 night
Day 8: Oxford
Day 9: travel to Edinburgh (is there an overnight train to Edinburgh?
Day 10 : Edinburgh
Day 11: Edinburgh
Day 12: fly out Of Edinburgh back to Cape Town
Is this too much? Any suggestions? Can we do this with public transport ?
