My husband and I are planning an 8-9 day trip to London and some surrounding areas. I have been doing alot of research and I think we want to spend a day or two in London and then go to (in no particular order) Bath, Oxford (stop at Blenheim Palace before or after), Stratford, Stonehenge, Windsor for several days, returning to London for another day or two. I was thinking of renting a car for the out-of-London travel but the general advice on that seems to be "no"! Trains are highly recommended. I'm feeling a little overwelmed with information at this point and I'm wondering if someone can suggest a workable itinerary? For example, is this do-able? What order should we do this in? How much time in each area? Where should we plan overnights? Would I be able to see Highclere at all (I've read that all tours are sold out for 2014). I would say our budget is moderate or above. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
