This September my wife and I have planned a 12 day driving tour through the Costwolds, Peaks, Lakes and lower Scottish Highlands. One full day in the Cotswolds would involve driving to Oxford and taking the HOHO Bus tour, and then going to Blenheim Palace.
We are staying for three nights at a B&B in Chipping Campden.
So, it seems like a 60-90 minute HOHO Bus loop (most times we just stay on a HOH bus and get the overview. We probably won't get off and hang out with the students and check out the library!!
Onto Blenheim for 4-6 hours to see the palace and gardens. The Blenheim website even give options of seeing much in under 4 hours; or seeing a lot in over 4 hours.
Any thoughts on this busy day? We are pretty active and enjoy walking/hiking. Also, what about parking our rental car and how that may work. I assume Blenheim has a parking area; not sure about Oxford in relation to the HOHO bus. Thanks for any advice.
