I'd appreciate feedback and suggestions. My wife and I have 16 nights in August between flying in and out of London Gatwick, and we've come up with the following proposed itinerary. We are young, fairly mobile, and don't want to rent a car. We tend to enjoy history, good museums, beautiful countryside, exploring small towns, great food, local establishments, etc. The whole "travel as a temporary local" mantra resonates with us.
Having studied the 2013 Great Britain book carefully, this is what we've come up with so far:
Bath- 3 nights
- day trip to Stonehenge and/or Avebury
York- 4 nights
- day trip? suggestions?
Edinburgh- 4 nights
- day trip into the highlands? or elsewhere?
London- 5 nights
We had considered a stay in Conwy, but thought it might be better to have more time in the above 4 locations plus time for day trips. Any thoughts on that? Should we save Wales for another time?
Would you suggest we re-prioritize in any way?
Thanks for your help.
