Hi, we're a retired couple and prefer travelling by train rather than renting a car. We've spent one week in London last year, so plan to limit our time in London this time to 2 to 3 days. Our interests are primarily sightseeing at our pace.
Our rough 3 week itinerary is:
London to Plymouth
Plymouth to Bath
Bath to Chester
Chester to Windermere
Windermere to Edinburgh
Edinburgh to York
York to London
I'm allowing one day for train travel and approx.2 days stay at each location. Plan to book Day trips in most locations.
My one concern is Chester to Windermere route requires 3 train changes. Is there another route you can suggest? Should we change Chester to another destination? We want to book a Day tour which starts in Windermere.
Appreciate receiving some expert.advice.
