Day trips from London

I am going to London on business next week and will have a free day on Sunday, September 28th. I have a car and would like to take a day trip out of the city. I have been to the ususal tourist spots Bath,Cambrdige,Stonehenge and would like to do something different. Any suggestions?

You could try Leeds Castle, Canterbury and Rochester, all in nearby Kent. There are endless small towns on the way there (M20) and back (M2).

Why not try East Anglia? Constable Country, the Suffolk Coast (eg Aldeburgh, Southwold), medieval Suffolk villages, Framlingham, Norwich, the choices are endless. The driving is easier than elsewhere because most of East Anglia is not on the way to any large population centres.

The south coast (Brighton, Eastbourne, Hastings)

Arundel or Lewes (cute old towns, but probably much will be closed on Sundays) & Brighton (lively resort but Pavilion/plenty of history as well).

Imperial War Museum Duxford (very large air museum) - there's a historic bus show on the 28th as well as the museum ... well you asked for different ...

Oxford & Blenheim Palace? (there's some sort of bicycle race on that day)

Surrey County Ploughing Match


Flat Racing at Ascot that weekend

I have been to Brighton, (from London) 4 times and can't get enough of it, just the most fun beach town. Go out on the Pleasure Pier.

I also think you will love Hever Castle, the gardens themselves are worth driving out for and Tunbridge Wells is a cute, cute little town as well. Happy Travels!
