I live short-term in Newcastle. I plan to visit both Cambridge and Stratford-upon-Avon over the 3 day-bank holiday from 5 to 7 May 2012.
I am shocked to find out that although Cambridge and Stratford-upon-Avon are very close to each other (compared with their distances from Newcastle), the time for travelling between them on train takes even longer than when I travel from Newcastle. I thought a day trip from Cambridge and Stratford-upon-Avon or vice verse was possible, but it does not seem to be the case.
Would everyone be kind as to let me what will be the best transportation plan?
