We will be traveling to England at the end June. I have a business trip to Manchester and we plan to visit London after for 5 days . Right now 4 night/5 days on the front part of the trip available and then we proceed to Manchester and back to London.
We are looking at options for the south coast - a possible good base and ideas. My wife has an interest in seeing Cornwall and Saint Michaels Mount. Perhaps Portsmouth and even Dover but those are far and maybe save those for a later trip. We both are interested in history and so historical sites are of strong interest.
Is there a good base where we could stay and then use public transportation? I see a train line up and down the coast but is this a good option?
