I wanted to thank each and every one of you for wonderful
advice and suggestions!! I will check out each of the URLs
you have supplied.
We will be starting our several week trip in Turnbridge Wells, where
we will take a day trip to Canterbury, see a few National Trust properties in
that area, and then head out West to Cornwall. We will be renting a car
for this part of our trip. After Cornwall, we want to
drive all the way back East to Winchester where will turn our rental car
back in and just enjoy the town before taking transport into Heathrow for our
return flight home.
On our drive West, we plan to take your suggestion, Bob, and stop in Portsmouth
to see the Mary Rose, HMS Warrior and HMS Victory. We're afraid that the Mary Rose
may be closed when we go there next May, but the other ships sound very interesting.
Eef, it's great to hear that you really like the cathedral. We really like walking tours.
I'm assuming we can find info about this at the tourist office....sounds like it may
be located in the Guildhall. True?
Katy, thanks so much for mentioning taking a tour of the Cathedral. We took
tours of the Salisbury Cathedral as well as the York Minster this past May, and
got alot out of both of them. We'll look into a tour of this one. Also, thanks
for mentioning the Boy's College. My husband and I get a big kick out of colleges.
I had never heard of the Boy's College before.
I am getting so excited about next year's trip reading all of your suggestions!!
Thanks very much!!!
