Help with a trip to England

I am planning a trip to England. I would like to spend 2 days in London (have visited London before) and then leave the city to see Windsor Castle, Bath, Oxford,Blenheim Palace, a little of the Cotswolds, maybe Warwick Castle, ( any other must see you would recommend or is there something I should delete) and back to London. I would not plan on renting a car so I am looking to do public transport or a tour/tours. I am not a fancy traveller. Any suggestions? What months would you recommend to do the trip?

Best get a guide book - we don't know what sort of things that you like (or dislike).

As for months - do you want long days, long nights, warmish weather, Christmas lights....?

Let us know.

< I would not plan on renting a car >

I would rent for at least the Cotswolds, i might even consider it for most of the trip given that you are going across country even though Bath & Oxford are a PITA for parking

I would agree with September.

You could do all the places you mentioned by public transport or tours. If you stayed overnight in Bath you could then get a good length of day with a tour of the Cotswolds.

I agree with Suebovington. For this year September. The school holidays are over and the weather can be good if you are lucky. For 2015 May or June before the school holidays start.
