Could someone let us know if this brief itinerary is doable?
We have a short time to travel - we don't want to be rushed like mad though.
Here is the idea:
3 nights London
3 nights Bath
1 night Thornbury Castle
1 night London
We have an eight hour red-eye flight to get to London so we don't want to start off right away - we will need a couple of nights in London to rest up before setting off to the next stop.
The plan is to visit London to see St. Paul's cathedral, have a stop in the park or ride bikes, visit Westminster Abbey, and see a couple of museums (we are also hoping to see a play in the evening.
From there we would go to Avebury for an afternoon tour, dinner nearby, and then a visit to the site at sunset before continuing onto our lodging in Bath. In Bath, we would sightsee for a couple of days, then stop 1 day at Thornbury (to use up a credit on a botched reserved) and then return to London for one night to rest before catching the overseas flight home.
Any tips of making this itinerary work well would be super.
Also, can anyone provide a link on where to find train times for:
- London to Salisbury (hope we could pick up a car in town)
- Salisbury (or Avebury) to Bath
- Thornbury, or the nearest location, back to London
The train stations are really overwhelming for us so if you have any other tips on saving time moving about it would be most appreciated.
Also wondering if we need to try and add a night in Avebury and an extra night in London at the end of the stay.
Is there a better way to do all this?
