We have a 10 day trip scheduled soon. Traveling into London and have a rental car. first night and last 4 nights booked in London. We have 5 nights and days to plan otherwise. We have been to Brighton, but were thinking about Bath, or Bristol, or Cardiff. We also want to see Stonehenge and maybe a castle. We like to stay near shopping and dining in a city center but we can take day trips. We also may spend the first night outside of London in Southampton, Bournemouth, or Winchester. I am really torn on where to make our home base and don't want to move daily.
Also, I am terrified of driving in high places and don't want to cross that Bristol suspension bridge (or anythinng like that) but want to go into Cotswolds... I can't find any info on whether driving is treacherous there.
