Since there's always great advice from this forum, wanted to ask for any pointers. I'm heading to the London areas August 9th -12th (these are actual days on the ground, we travel in on the 8th and out on the 13th) and will be staying in Guildford since some family lives out there. I'm traveling with my 17 year old sister and it's her first time in London. We are planning on heading into the city and exploring the area outside of London, but I am curious about transportation into London and getting around from Guildford. We aren't renting a car, so would appreciate any tips on rail/bus suggestions for getting into the City and traveling around the countryside.
We are considering trips to Bath, Greenwich, Stratford-upon-Avon, and possibly Stonehenge in addition to several days in London (afternoon tea, museums, midnight play at the Globe, the Tower, and general wandering).
Also, if there are other suggestions on things a 17 year old first timer might enjoy, feel free to share!
