My friend and I have 53 days in a car, mid-July to early-September, with no set itinerary. We have our first night's accommodation booked, we know where we're starting and where we're finishing, and we'll be following our noses the rest of the time.
Now, before you all say it, yes, we do know we're travelling in peak tourist season. Yes, we know not pre-booking all of our accommodation leaves us in a 'take what you can get' situation. But we don't want to lock ourselves into a set timetable. We want to be able to say, "We love it here, let's stay a few days!" Heck, it's an adventure!
We will have already had a week in Paris, and two nights in London. Our first night on the road will be just outside Canterbury. Our last night will be in Cambridge. We want to see as much of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales as we can.
So here's my question. If you had seven weeks, what would be top of your list to go and see or do again? Anything. From an obscure pub in the middle of nowhere, to an "all the tourists go here" that exceeded your expectations.
Our interests include, but aren't limited to, history, scenery, old buildings, etc. I'm into anything to do with horse racing, my friend's into anything to do with the Beatles. Neither of us are interested in clubbing or the nightlife.
Have at it!
