I grew up in England and plan to visit this summer with my family for a dream holiday, 37 years later! We will be going on a UK cruise and spending some time around London, but in addition to that we plan to spend five days retracing my "roots." I would love some help with this!
The cruise ends in Southampton. From there, this is my tentative itinerary with daily driving times, based on places we lived:
Monday drive to eastbourne sussex 2 hours
Tuesday - drive to Barnsley via Kent 5 hours
Wednesday S yorkshire, Rotherham area
Thursday Brecon Beacons - drive to Cardiff 6 hours (??) or Cotswolds or ???
Friday drive to Surrey via Stonehenge 3.5 hours
This is a link to google maps, where I mapped out this route:
Thursday and Friday are flexible - I'm considering a detour to the Cardiff area (my son would love to add another country to his list lol) and Stonehenge. but I'm open to ideas.
Any suggestions for scenic routes? (Sussex, Kent and South Yorkshire are a MUST)
