Hi all. My husband and I are going to the UK (and Eire if we get time) this antipodean spring (UK autumn) for 4 weeks. I wonder can either UK dopers, or World dopers who have visited, help with some questions, please?
Emphasis of the time will be on back-roads, and countryside, and scenery, and a bit of history; we are also going to do some day walks. Our intent is train and local buses to get around, and hire a care form time to time if we want to travel a longer distance, or somewhere train/bus is not convenient.
Would people give their opinions or whether August or September is a better idea? I would think the pros for August would be that it would be a bit warmer, and longer days; pros for September would be that it would tend to be a bit quieter in terms of numbers of visitors?
Not intending to spend more than a couple of days in London, or any other big city. What are peoples “must sees”?
Did you have any thing you were really looking forward to that did not live up to expectation?
I will check back as I can, but I am on opposite times to the majority of the board, so please excuse late replies.
