3 wks in UK

Hi everyone,

Planning to make my first trip to UK next month and itinerary advices for 3 wks are more than welcome. I'm interested in culture and history.. travelling should happen cheapest/easiest way from place to another by using public transportations.

My first priority is to see places in England. Then maybe in Scotland and last but not least Ireland. (Actually already thinking about skipping Ireland.)

I'm flying first to London and maybe then I shall pay a visit in Oxford and Bath from where travel continues to North and finally trip ends back to London where I'm going to spend maybe 5 days.

Problem is that I'm bit perfectionist and I want to see and experience everything at once but as well as in many cases the time is again limiting factor.

Thank you already in advance!

After making some studies I basically decided to focus only to England.

My itinerary could look something like this...

1. Day Arrival to LHR in the morning -> Oxford

2. Oxford

3. Oxford -> Bath

4. Bath

5. Stone henge, Costwold village, Lacock, Castle combe

6. Bath -> Chester

7. Chester

8. Chester -> York

9.-11. York

12. York - > London

13.-17. London

18. Return flight

Any suggestions for improvement?

Hello! Nice to read an itinarary that isn't trying to cram in too much. In fact, I see that you have allowed three full days for York, which is quite a lot for a small city. You might like to think about cutting York back to two or even one full day and then having extra time in London but using that time for a day trip to somewhere like Canterbury, which is a very attractive city and plays an important role in our history and culture

Thank you Sandy! Canterbury and Windsor are possible options so I'm going to think about your suggestion. :)
