We are going to be in UK for 2 weeks this Sept.on a driving tour of more rural countryside.
From Chipping Campden we will take a day and head to Bath and then to Avebury to see standing stones close up. Stonehenge would be great, but I think too touristy and cannot really get close. Ok to skip Stonhenge and see Avebury instead?
And then a few days later (after 3 nights in the Cotswolds) we'll head north to the Peaks area, stopping in Stratford Upon Avon for half day. Don't want to see a play at night and not sure the best way to see Strattford. Always the HOHO bus trip for a general overview (about $25 pp). Then there's the "5 House Entrance" package for $32 pp. Although from Rick's description of the houses it sounds like that's maybe not worth it.
I guess we'd enjoy just walking through town and looking around to see what's what. But, don't want to miss the best; but don't have huge time available as we are heading to the Peaks area. Any thought on Strattford Upon Avon?
