My fiancee and I will be heading to England (she was actually born there) from May 10th - 18th. We arrive early morning the 11th at Heathrow, are looking for a hotel in London to stay at that night (any suggestions?), and then the rest of our trip is up in the air...but we want to cover as much as possible in our time there. My thought is to stay in London until the evening of the 12th (or morning of the 13th) and then take a train to Torquay. Rent a car there, then drive to Bornemouth, Bristol, Oxford, and then end in Luton (to meet her grandmother who lives there) on the 17th. I could use a ton of help and any suggestions on things to see, places to see, where to stay, itinerary / drive-path suggestions, anything--this is my first time to England, and she unfortuantely isn't much of a "planner," so I'm on my own in organizing this.
Thanks so much!
