Taking a trip to England and want ideas for an an itinerary? Here’s what I did. What follows is a series on my two-week trip, sprinkled with advice and attractions from England, Wales, and Scotland.
My interest lay in historical attractions, and I visited a good assortment of places dating from England’s Roman age (AD 42–400) to the Victorian age (1850–1910).
The following sites/towns (and others) will be addressed:
- Globe Theatre
- Tower of London
- Westminster Abbey
- Hadrian’s wall
- St. Martin in the Field
- British Library
- Alnwick Castle
- Old Gaol at Hexham
- Hylton Castle
- Bamburgh Castle
I made the trip with both my parents, my old college roommate, my sister, and her fiance. We rented a car and did quite a lot of driving. With six of us and our luggage crammed into one of those wee little UK conveyances, it was quite tight.
Tip: Lighten your packing by bringing only 2 or 3 changes of clothes, a bit of laundry soap, and a clothes line. Do your washing in the sink.
