I was reading some older posts from last summer regarding visitors trying to cram 6 areas into a 4 day visit to England. I think most US visitors see the small distances from one major city to another, so assume it's a piece of cake. Never thinking that every exit/town would be a great place to stop!
That being said, my friends and I are trying to explore Northern England in 5 days :) We are going to take a train from London to York, then rent a car and drive through the Moors to the coast, across to the Lake District, stop in Liverpool for 1/2 day (Beatles tour of course), then a train back to London.
Does this sound halfway sensible? What are the must-sees and must-dos for the Moors and the Lake District?
Thanks to any information - have always found this site to be of great value!
