Hello! I am working on finalizing a 3 week trip to Europe in Aug for my husband and I. I have 5 days in England (flying into London) before heading to Dublin via Holyhead ferry. I was a History major with a focus on Tudor England so we (and by we I mean me) have decided to focus our time in England on Tudorish sites because of the 500th Anniversary of the coronation of Henry VIII. I have a generally idea of what traditional London items we are going to hit up plus what Tudor things I am adding (Hampton Court, Hever House and some others).
I am curious is it worth hitting up York on our way to Wales. I know it is out of the way but looking at the train schedule it doesn't look like that terrible of a detour.
If I do add York, does anyone have any suggestions of places we should stop between London and York to stretch our legs and poke around for a bit?
I am not sure what pace we will move through London and I don't want to be rushed. I have been to London twice but my husband has never been so I think we may move slower than I would together.
Sorry this was a rambling post...
