Bosses have ok'd three weeks off for next year after our own summer busy season, and I am sitting here lookng at taking that time August 20 to September 10, 2016
There'll two weeks in Ireland and England, with the first week in Dublin, Ironbridge Gorge and York, then the second week in London. So, two weeks sometime within August 20 and September 10. How's the tourist season going at that point? Any bank/national holidays to be mindful of? Kids back in school yet?
I have the museums and historic sites I want to visit well scoped out, but I do have special interest in iron working/making history, and early 17th century English/Virginia history, along with a bit of knitting (any fiber fairs?). But, on the other hand, what about the local non-tourist things to do and see?
