Edinburgh Rail Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
This was a really well planned trip and so much fun. The train ride is really long 4 12 hrs but the countryside along the way is stunning and it's fairly easy to sleep. Edinburgh Castle was really amazing and I would recommended taking the guided tour, which is free, you get good information about the Castle and about Scotland. The hop-on, hop-off was a nice way to see the town and appreciate the history. We recommend taking the bus tour directly to the castle, spend as much time as you want in the castle you'll also be there for the 1pm gun and then ride the bus tour in it's entirety to see the rest of the town. You'll have plenty of time to shop and eat along the way. We actually finished early, around 430-5pm and since the tickets are open tickets, you can take the early trains back to London. It was a really nice day and we really enjoyed Scotland.

Oxford, Cotswolds, Stratford-on-Avon and Warwick Castle Day Trip from London

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
Warwick Castle was by far the best site on this excursion. It was really neat to see a castle that really capitalized on generating tourism through younger audiences. I usually don't like kid oriented visits, but I really enjoyed this Castle since there was enough to do for both young and old. Stratford-on-Avon was beautiful and a great place to stop for lunch. Oxford was definitely disappointing in that we did not have any free time, since our tour was running late. We did get to go into Christ's Church and see the Harry Potter sites which I really wanted to do, but I was not able to visit Alice's Shop to buy an authentic Alice in Wonderland book, so that was disappointing. Overall the day was enjoyable.

Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, Bath, and Medieval Village of Lacock Including Traditional Pub Lunch

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
What a great trip! We really enjoyed all three locations, especially Windsor Castle. The state apartments and St. George's Chapel were really gorgeous. Stonehenge is just fantastic to see and yes, 45 min is too long for the site, but we discovered that it's British law that bus drivers have a 45 min break each stop, that's why you have to stop for so long. Other posters were complaining about the timeframe, so I thought I'd clear it up. Bath was really beautiful and the Roman Baths were really interesting. The only drawback to Bath was that the tickets to the Roman Bath were not included and it was 23L each, so a little pricey.

Tower of London Entrance Ticket Including Crown Jewels and Beefeater Tour

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Tower of London is a must to do in London. A word of advice, you only skip the ticket line, you do still have a small line to get into the tower and you need to go directly to the Crown Jewels when you get there. We arrived on a Sunday around 10am to the Tower, skipped the small line and waited maybe 10 min to get into the Tower. From there we went directly to the Crown Jewels, where there was no line, and came back to the Beefeater tour at 11am after seeing the Jewels. When we were done with the Beefeater tour approximately 45 min later, the line to the Crown Jewels was so long that it was starting to wrap around the White Tower. It must have taken the people standing in line over 2 hours just to see the Jewels. Get to the Tower early and go see the Crown Jewels directly.

The Original London Sightseeing Tour: Hop-on Hop-off

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
It's truly the best way to start off you trip in a city that you've never been to before. Hop-on Hop-off makes it so easy to figure out where everything this is and it's how to get back to those locations on later days. I really enjoy being able to just sit back relax and see the best of a city from aboard the bus.
