@Macsgirl14: I’ve never been to the UK so I have no travel/activity advice for you, I just wanted to pop in and say congrats on the awesome honeymoon plans! It sounds like you’re going to have an amazing trip 🙂

Oooo, exciting! I love my country, I think it’s seriously underrated as a holiday destination. 


If you’re into the castles/history then London is definitely your first stop. But you should also look at Edinburgh, Arundel and Windsor, Chatsworth, Blenheim. 


For breath taking landscapes, look at the Peak District and the Lake District – to my mind they’re even more gorgeous than the Highlands, and more accessible too. Unless you plan really well you mignt find it a bit difficult to get out to Skye. 


If you want to go to Edinburgh, it might well be worth doing a. Internal flt, rather than trying to drive it. 


 Edit – ask me anything you want to know, I’ve travelled round the UK a lot!

If I were you I’d consider doing it one way and then flying back down from Scotland to heathrow to meet your flight. 

Im not sure what to advise on travel research – I guess I’ve never really done it in my own country! My preferred starting point for itinerarys though is always to look at tours – they give you a good feel for what’s possible in the timeframe, then you can adapt it to what you want to do. 

Of course, you’re going to need to go through Liverpool for Beatles stuff! Cardiff for the Dr Who experience (I went in London and it was awesome!) and then the architecture, castles and landscapes will pretty much fit in between those. London-bath-Cardiff-lake district-Edinburgh is do-able, but will be a whistlestop tour!

Skye is absolutely stunning, but it is a beast to get to and travel can be difficult. If you are on a limited time frame then you may want to give it a miss. The weather there can also be unpredictable… it is at it’s best from May-September, IMO.

If you are on a limited time frame then I suggest London, and maybe also Brighton (for a fun, modern city), Oxford, and Cambridge (to see Harry Potter-esque towns).

What type of landscapes do you like to see? Seaside, moors, downs, mountains, etc?
