Am going to book a tour at the HP Studios for either the 2nd or 3rd of January as a Christmas present. Will also stay overnight and be driving up from South Wales. For ease and cost thought it would be better to stay somewhere around the studio's so I can drive there easily enough and then either drive or get the train into London (depending on cost) the previous or following day to have a few hours there shopping etc.
Please could someone advise on if this is ok or if an alternative plan would be better? If it's good to stay close by what are the acommodation options and would I be better to drive or train into London? If train from which station is closest?
Many Thanks for any advice in advance.
