I am traveling to England/Ireland/Scotland from May1-22 and just trying to see what exactly is the best places to see and how to get around.
We are going to go through London on May 2 and stay in southern england for 2 days then up to holyhead and over to dublin. Spend 2 nights there and then up to Scotland to Glasgow, Oban, Tiree, and Edinburgh. If there are suggestions on great places to go please let me know.
I am trying to find things my mom will enjoy as well as myself, and the age gap 52 and 25 makes it pretty difficult to find things we will both be into, but again any info would be great. Cheers!
Trains (trainline.com/megatrain.com) or buses/coaches (national express/megabus) are the easiest and cheapest ways to travel, though you may want to fly back from scotland to London to save time (ryanair maybe?). Edinburgh is a great palce to visit.
In London my fave places to go are the British museum and the millenium wheel, but to be honest there's so much to do you're bound to find something there. In southern england brighton is worth a visit, plenty to see there. I wouldn't worry about stonehenge it's pretty underwhelming when you see it!
If you do end up flying, definitely check out www.harefares.com as it lets you choose multiple origin and destination airports and then shows all the cheap airlines that fly that route. In England, you should have a lot to choose from. Happy planning!
