England: 15 nights

Arrive in London

Travel into central London to arrive at your hotel. Settle in at the hotel or, if your room isn't quite ready, drop off your bags and head out. Enjoy an afternoon stroll and dinner. This is a great time to orient yourself with the neighbourhood. Visit a nearby museum or gallery. Stop for a snack somewhere along the way.

3 nights

Catch the train to York

York is about two hours north of London by train. From the train station, walk to your hotel and get settled in (try to stay within the Roman walls). Spend a half day in York. Two good daytrips out of York include Castle Howard or the ruins of Rievaulx Abbey.

3 nights

Catch the train to Birmingham

Use Birmingham as your home base in the Midlands. After settling in at your hotel, explore central Birmingham's architecture and galleries. Daytrips from Birmingham include Warwick (with its 1,000-year-old castle) and Stratford-upon-Avon (home of William Shakespeare).

3 nights

Catch the train to Bath

You'll have to make a couple of changes en route by train to Georgian Bath Spa, but it's worth it. Get settled in at your hotel and then explore the town – best seen on foot. Daytrips out of Bath include ancient Stonehenge, or the cathedral cities of Salisbury and Wells.

3 nights

Return to London

This trip bookends with London ... just as well because there's so much to see and do here. After settling in at your hotel, hit the streets. More museums, galleries, buildings and churches await your discovery. Save room for a curry. Then, sadly, it's the flight home.
