My sister and I (both in our early thirties) will be spending 3 weeks in Europe this MAY doing a lot of Rick Steve's 3-week road trip. We will be travelling by car. We have never been to Great Britain before. I'm having a tough time figuring out how to plan 2 days of it. We will start the morning by leaving Chipping Campden travelling towards North Wales to spend 2 nights in Conwy and tour the sights in North Wales. I know it is a bit of a drive, so not sure what we will have time to do the first day. Do we take the time to stop in Ironbridge Gorge? Do we have time to do any hiking? Do we take the Snowden Mountain Railway?
This is all I have so far:
Day 6 (Friday): Leave Chipping Campden....then what?
Day 7 (Saturday):
Day 8 (Sunday): Head to Lake District, sites of Lake district, etc..
For day 7, we could follow the rick steves' high lights of north wales: Bodnant Garden, pop into woolen mills, lunch in Llandberis, then tour Welsh Slate Museum, then drive to Caernarfon, catch the 16:00 castle tour, browse town of Caernarfon, drive back to Conwy and take self-guided town walk.
Any tips, ideas, words of wisdom? I just don't know how long it takes to get around the area, how long the different sites take to view, etc. which makes it hard to plan.
