I have talking to my wife forever about a trip to England and we finally decided to go nuts for our 25th. After much discussion (and a little argueing) I think that we finally have some idea of what we want to do. We will arrive Aug 29 and stay until Sep 22.
Day 1 Rent car in Heathrow, Drive to Windsor
Day 2 Drive to Highclere Castle (the last chance we get before it closes for the year), return car at Heathrow in evening, Tube to London
Day 3-5 London (3 day London Pass already purchased)
Day 6-13 Train to Southampton, Catch NCL 8 day cruise (Rotterdam, Oslo, Copenhagen, Hamburg)
Day 14-15 Rent car Southampton, Drive to Stonehenge, Avebury, Sleep in Avebury 2 nights (Full day in Bath)
Day 16-17 Oxford, Sleep in Cotswalds 2 nights (Stratford-Upon Avon, Warwick)
Day 18 Drive to Merther Tydfil (Wife promised I could ride a narrow gauge train in Wales)
Day 19 Drive to Ilfracombe (Hotel where Peroit was filmed (?))
Day 20 Drive to Lands End/Penzance (Stop in Port Isaac)
Day 21 Drive to Torquay (More Peroit (?))
Day 22 Take car back to Heathrow via Salisbury
Day 23-25 London again, Fly out next morning early.
I had to give up Edinburgh, Hadrians Wall and Caernefon. Wife gave up Dover, Canterbury, York. We wil just have to do Scotland/Ireland on another trip. Maybe even a cruise. Does anyone think this is legit or have any ideas that would be better? Thanks
