I will be in England for 7.5 days next month. I plan to stay one night in London. Then I hope to rent a car part of the time and travel via train the other times.
I have options to stay 2.5 miles from the Didcot Parkway train station and/or 0.25 miles from the Oxford Osney Mead train station. I am thinking of staying 3 nights near Didcot when I have a car, and then 3 nights near the Oxford Osney Mead station when I am using the train.
My current itinerary includes Cotswolds, Stratford on Avon, and Blenheim via car, and Bath and Windsor by train.
I love train travel, and I am interested in Christmas Markets, Victorian history, and the Arts and Craft movement. Is there anything fab that I missing. I am also considering Winchester, Cardiff, York, or Edinburgh (or some combo (not all) of the four.
