Traveling to London and Ireland with 18 and 20 year old sons

Planning a trip to England/Ireland next July with our 18 and 20 year old sons. Any recommendations on places to go or stay that would be interesting for all or must see locations? Thank you!!

Ask your sons what they would be interested in seeing. Are they familiar with British history? World war two history? Monarchy? Harry Potter?

There are so many things to see. Our grandchildren travel with us alot and always give their imput as to what interests them.

You are asking about interesting places in two whole countries

Look through some guidebooks or internet tourism sites and find some things that interest you

Then come back on here and we can help you put together an itinerary

There is so much to see .

That's a bit like asking if there are any must see locations in Canada and the US.

At those ages, they can get about on their own, surely?

So if there is stuff they want to do that differs from stuff M & D want to do, just split up for a while.

No reason for the whole family to be joined at the hips full time, eh?

I reckon you all need to read some guidebooks and/or make use of the on-line Tourist Office websites for countries/counties/areas/cities/towns that take your fancy, and enjoy!

You don't say how long you'll be in London or Ireland - that could have a big effect on what you can manage to see, especially in London where you could be here for weeks and still have places un-visited

As said earlier consult some guide books and draw up a list of priorities which interest you - asking other people for their ideas is like going to the supermarket with someone else's shopping list. Your sons will presumably be more interested in evening entertainments, pubs, clubs, girls etc, which may free you up for a show or theatre or concert..

Once you have your lists and a timespan people here can advise on the mbest way of grouping the sites and getting around them with maximum efficiency, but there are no 'must sees' - you will still be allowed to leave the country without completing a mandatory selection
