We plan to spend our first few days in London leisurely touring and enjoying the sites. We are not "regimented" tourist...perhaps we are more of casual tourist who enjoy seeing the sites as much as we enjoy "experiencing" the culture.
We would like to target a couple of village/cities outside London where we could travel, enjoy the town and spend the night. We have identified YORK and CHESTER as possibilities.
Can anyone tell us if these are good options, or if you would suggest something we have not considered.
We are looking for a town/village where we can explore it by foot, shop in antique stores, grab a beer in a pub or two (or three) along the way & catch a few historical sites.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
