Hi all. After getting over the shock of the fees and fees and fees for our plane tickets (the fee to choose your seat really bugged me...) and a glitch in payment system which will require us to call tomorrow -- we can think of other plans.
April 17-23 East Coast US to London (etc.)
It's almost overwhelming to know where to start even with the FAQs. Next concern is lodging - comfortable, reliable, good location, 2Adult + 1 Child (who will be 11).
I think we will plan to stay in London most of the time but hoping to get to Stonehenge (which we've read is easily combined with Bath?) and if we can figure it out, I would love to take the train to Wales for a day (or overnight?) as we can trace 2 branches of our family there. It would be nice just to see a small piece of it.
We love to go a bit off the beaten path, see things that are unique and/or might be a hidden gem and get a sense of how people live during our travels (in Iceland we took tours with locals in very small groups - which was only us us + another family most of the time). London seems so overwhelming. So much to do and multiple ways to do everything.
Tips? Discounts? fares? must-sees, and more!
Thanks in advance for pointing me in the right direction.
