Our family of 4, with kids aged 8 & 10 yrs will be in London for 8 days in August. I'm wondering if it would be better to rent/hire a car as I think a car would cut down on the cost of transportation, and also give us more flexibility in choosing where we could go.
I'm interesed in going to Windsor Castle, Cotswold, Stonehenge, and possibly some other places...I welcome recommendations for places to visit and things to do with the kids.
What are your thoughts on this? Does it cost to park at a hotel? If we have a car, would it then make sense to live further from the hub of London, so we can find cheaper accomodations?
Has any one had the experience of driving on the "other" side of the road? My husband's a bit apprehensive about this...
