We will be in England at the start of December, and have the following itinerary in mind. Open to suggestions and feedback, particularly about whether we are packing too much in, or if we are missing highlights along the way.
Would also appreciate feedback on whether hiring a car to drive from Bath to Durham is a good idea, and have the car with us to go to the Lake District, or if it would be easy enough to do this by train.
Day 1: Arrive in London
Days 2 to 6: London, including day trips to Oxford/Windsor
Days 7 and 8: Bath
Day 9: Hire a car and drive to Durham, stopping at Birmingham on the way to meet friends for lunch
Days 10 and 11: Durham, including the Lake District
Day 12: Catch a train from Durham to London airport, fly out
