My husband and I are planning our first exciting European trip for early next May. We are in our late 20's, early 30's.
It is a 6 week trip and London will end up being our longest stay in one place.
8 nights - staying around Shoreditch or Camden town, visiting plenty of cafes, gardens, pubs, and walking/bike riding between sights. I am very interested in London for the history(medieval, Victorian(major Charles Dickens fan, also George Eliot, Tennyson)), also 60's music scene(Carnaby Street/Abbey Road). I have English heritage as all my Grandmas family were miners in Cornwall/Devon(Tavistock/Penzance) before coming to Australia in the 1880's. Currently toying with the idea of having a little "Who Do you think you are" type day or 2 down there.
If we decide against it what are some other nice day trips on the train, Bath/Brighton etc? Where would you recommend? What is Portsmouth like? Most of my ancestors as well as my husbands grandparents left England in ships from there so it may be nice to walk where they walked. Mainly would like to get out of the big city for a day and see a little taste of England. Maybe even see some moors! :)
Thanks in advance!Edited: 16 July 2014, 04:04
