Our daughter is studying abroad in London this fall, which gave us the excuse to visit the area with our youngest daughter. We are staying in London a few days, and then I would like to travel to Rochester, down to Leeds, to Bodiam Castle, and then head up to Tonbridge and Hever Castle.
Can anyone tell me where the best place to arrange to rent a car would be?
After reviewing quite a bit of information, I realize that many of the sights close at the end of Sept, or Oct. But, I have managed to find some places that are actually still open for us to see.
But, what does one do in the evening? Will we be stuck having to stay in a hotel room? This might sound silly, but I would like to see as much as I possibly can in this short time, and I would also like to expose my daughters to much of the English countryside in this area.
My husband and I traveled to this area about six years ago, and we so enjoyed the hospitality offered by every person we met. But, it was summer, and we were perfectly content just admiring the countryside.
Any advise, sidetrips, places to stay, or see would be greatly appreciated.
We plan to travel in late November.
