Unfortunately your query is a bit wide, superque. London and Paris alone could easily fill two weeks but what sort of things do you like to do? Art, theatre, museums, history, good food, relax and take in the atmosphere?

Great Britain is a big place, including three countries (England, Wales and Scotland) and literally thousands upon thousands of 'must sees'. ave you got certain destinations in mind? Again, what sort of sights do you like to visit? What sort of holiday are you looking for?

Sorry not to be much help, but you'll need to narrow your query a bit, I think...

If you want cities, then I'd spend 2 nights in Edinburgh Scotland, 2 nights in York, 2 nights in Liverpool, 2 nights in Bath, 3 in London and 3 in Paris

If you want spectacular countryside then I'd exchange those 2 nights above for 2 nights in the Scottish Highlands (Oban or Fort William) 2 nights in the Lake District (recommend Keswick), 2 nights the Yorkshire dales- Malham, Ilkley, Grassington, Masham, Reeth or Richmond ), and 2 nights in the Cotwolds- then do London and Paris

If you want coastal scenery then, Dorset ,Cornwall, Pembrokeshire and Northumberland.

Alternatively mix and match!
