Hello! I am throwing around the idea of a UK trip with my 3 children, who will be 14, 12, and 10 next summer. I was thinking 1 1/2 - 2 weeks. My initial thought is that I would like to visit England, Scotland, Whales, and Ireland. I do not wish to rent a car, if it is avoidable.
I am looking for budget minded tips and "must see" places for children of this age, as well as information on local transportation. Also, as I have not been to Europe in over 10 years, when is the best time of year/day to buy US-Europe airfare? We will be traveling in August 2015.
