My wife and I are taking our 10 and 15 year old sons to England in July. We have allocated 14 days which includes arriving on the morning of the 11th and departing on the afternoon of the 25th. Teenager is into art and theater while 10 year old is open to whatever. We spent 2 weeks in Australia 4 years back and mostly did site seeing and boys enjoyed it all.
From discussions with colleagues the idea was to spend 4 nights in London, drive to Cotwolds to spend 3 nights, Lake District 3 nights, Edinburgh 3 nights - train back to London on the 24th Leave London on the 25th.
Some comments seem to have suggested driving isn't a good idea except maybe once out of the city.
I'm concerned Scotland might be too much as I'm sure plenty to see in Southern England. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
