I am heading back home to Montreal and I have 9 days in the UK (it's my first time there). My plane arrives and leaves London (30th June to 9th July). I am traveling on my own with no car.
I made this itinerary, does it make sense? I must make a stop in Glasgow to see a graduate school.
30th: Arrive early morning to London spend day and night.
1st: full day in London.
2nd: Head to Cambridge early morning for a half day. Head to York for the evening and night.
3rd: Spend morning in York arrive late afternoon to Edinburgh.
4th: full day in Edinburgh.
5th: take excursion to Glan Coe and sleep in Edinburgh.
6th: Early morning to Inverness, day and night there.
7th: Morning to Glasgow day and night there.
8th: Early afternoon head to London.
9th: day in London.
I am mostly interested by art and beautiful views. I like to walk. I am on a student budget.
Are there any hidden gems in any of those place that I must see. Nice art galleries, pretty parks, good friendly pubs and restaurants? Or places that are tourist traps that I should avoid at all cost?
