We will be flying into Edinburgh and touring there a few days before our Rick Steves England trip in July. Flight connects through Heathrow with only one and a half hours connection time. Will we need more time there in order to go through customs or passport control? or will that not happen until Edinburgh?
We are considering after a couple of days in Edinburgh, driving to St. Andrews and a bit of highlands before training or flying down to London area where we will do another day of car touring (Cambridge, Stonehenge, Stratford, we hope) before meeting the group at its beginning point in Bath. Considering staying in Cambridge or Oxford rather than London. Can't do it after the tour (thus we know we will miss Edinburgh festivals and Tattoo) Any advice on better itinerary or places not to miss?
