Hey everyone, I'm an American student currently studying abroad in Manchester for the semester. I've been going on trips around the UK during the weekends and have already visited a lot of places, but not yet London. I bought a ticket to see King Lear at the Globe in mid-May, so I decided to center my London trip around that. I'll have 5 days in London, with the last day mostly all taken up by the show. My plan is to spend the first 3 days exploring London, and then use the 4th day to take a day trip. My preferences are beautiful areas of nature, mountains, lakes, coasts, beaches, etc. Transportation by train or bus is a must, as I won't have a car. Do you have any suggestions? My favorite place in the world so far is the Lake District, if you want to get a feel for the places I enjoy.
Thanks for any help you can give!
