Hope this deadly pandemic will die out soon so we can travel again, mate!

If you haven't already booked it might be wise to defer plans to travel from the U.S. beyond "late September into early October."

You don't say what U.S. city you plan to leave from; it might matter. United Airlines, for example, has adjusted its northern hemisphere schedule yet again, pushing the resumption of some international flights back to Oct. 24.

See this link: https://www.routesonline.com/news/38/airlineroute/291056/united-2q20-interim-long-haul-and-ns20-update-as-of-0215gmt-02may20/

You still can get flights to Europe from major U.S. cities such as New York. But even if you booked in late summer for fall travel there is the chance the flight you select might be cancelled and you perhaps will be rebooked on another flight. That makes it difficult to arrange accommodations with any surety that you will be there as planned (advise you do not prepay for any accommodations in the event you have to cancel or make adjustments).

It's difficult to tell at this point what travel restrictions, if any, will greet you when you arrive in England and France. Continued social distance requirements, for example, could limit your ability to visit certain places such as museums and theaters.

P.S. If you're already purchased airline tickets and prepaid accommodations then it's another matter. We can discuss further.

Yes, also eateries. The current suggestion is that pubs and restaurants may not reopen here till year end. Though obviously the situation is very fluid.
