We plan to make 24-28 days family trip in England and Scotland nest summer ( somewhere between july 8 and august 20). And we got some questions.
basic nfo: flight From Montreal, 2 kids (7 and 11).
1) Cost: what would be daily cost for airbnb, some restaurants and activities and travel (still have to decide decide car or train). Can we get away with it with a daily budget of 250-275 pounds ?
2) Car vs train: Of course we wont need a car in London but since we want a mix of cities, villages and nature what would be the best option. Is there a cost for renting in England and droping in Scotland ?
3) Best base ? We like to have 5-6 base for 4 to 6 days each and daytrip from there. We want to see:
London, Bath, York, Hadrian's wall, Northtumberland, Edingburg, Higlhands and Skye.
Is it feasible ? what would be good base to see them and throw in some fun for kids (theme park, museum, playground, pools)
4) Flight from Montreal is to London and Glasgow. If we travel with Icelandair we also got the option to Aberdeen. We could also add a layover for 3-4 nights in Iceland (of course that would mean to cut some places in UK).
Thanks in advance !
