These are probably silly questions, but... My family is staying at the Barnsdale Country Club for a week next summer. I had planned to spend the week before in London. We are going to rent a car in London and drive to Oakham so that we can explore the area.
1) Is it better to rent a car or to use the trains?
2) I was thinking to visit some other areas, like Stonehege and Brighton from Oakham? Is this totally ridiculous? Should we visit those towns from London instead?
Would love some insight!
