If you go to Stonehenge it would make sense to carry on to Winchester, rather than going back, since Winchester is a two-hour drive from Bath, whereas ‘henge to Winch is about 40 minutes. I hope you like my home town. 🙂

Dont miss Bolton Abbey which is just off the A-59 between
Harrogate and Skipton, its one of the most beautiful spots in
Britain IMHO.

Be aware that between Preston and Chester you can expect heavy traffic.

Have a good trip

>> York all day. stays in York.

Eat a typical pub lunch in the Royal Oak, try some the many real ales,
whilst you are there. The bell ringers from York Minster meet there.;

Duh he missed Fountains Abbey!

all sounds OK to me.
I checked spelling its pen y Gwryd, review at
http://www.pyg.co.uk” although I couldnt get it to load when I
just tried. Theres also lots of accomodation in Betws y Coed and
the Tyn y Coed at Lanberis (thats where I always stay). But the
Pen y Gwrydd should have more atmosphere as your half way up the
hill, other quests, if any, will probably be hillwalkers waiting
for the weather to change!

A bit early, especially if you are making your way from South Ealing to
Kings +.

Much better and more manageable. Remember that you’ll get the best
fare on your train to York if you book in advance and commit yourself
to a particular train. I’d recommend you to be at South Ealing tube
at 6am if you want to get the 7am train from Kings Cross. Book
through the train operator GNER directly at http://www.gner.co.uk/

Wye, not Wylie, valley: the nicest bits are along the road from
Chepstow to Monmouth. This is west of Bath while Stonehenge is south
and east: the distances aren’t huge but doing both Stonehenge and Wye
Valley in a day trip from Bath would make a rather full day

>- 11/25 Winchester, Oxford (or ditch Oxford and check back at hotel in

.. or possibly ditch Winchester and stay in Oxford; Oxford and
Winchester are both nice places but Oxford has more to see for a
visitor
Martin

Come to North West Scotland with the highest mountain in the UK and
some of the best scenery.

There are cheap flights into the four main Airports, Edinburgh,
Glasgow, Inverness and Aberdeen and thereafter you will need to hire a
car.

Worth the extra distance and expense especially if the weather is
favourable.
