Planning a last minute thanksgiving trip with our 4 and 6 year old. Adults have been to London several times but never the countryside. We will be back! We want to make sure we are kid friendly in our itinerary. Feel like a driving trip is most kid friendly vs bath/Oxford where the kids will be exhausted from walking (also think we could do those as day trips on future trips). Also wanted to pick places that aren’t great day trips from London. I’m dying to see the cotswalds - hope we’ll be back because I know November and one day isn’t ideal but was thinking this would be a teaser. Struggling to figure out groupings of activities. We can skip the day in London. Or we can move legoland to Wednesday. Should we add York and skip other things? Was initially planning on only doing countryside stuff and skipping London all together. I love antique shopping so maybe we can sneak in an hour or two of that (or I sneak it in and the rest find a playground and pastry shop!). Would love feedback! Thanks!
Sunday - arrive rent car and drive to tbd, nap, explore, evening Christmas Lights at a castle (maybe stay in Stratford on Avon or maybe stay at a castle-style hotel and make that the activity for the day)
Monday - model village and cotswalds
Tuesday - Warwick castle and return car to airport and go into London
Wednesday - London (hamleys, double decker bus tour, paddington station for paddington bear)
Thursday - sleep in London, legoland, thanksgiving din somewhere
Friday AM - fly home
