What day trips should we do and how to get there?

Stonehenge, Bath and Oxford are the most popular ones.

And while you can reach Bath and Oxford easily by train, similar Windsor, you’d have to book yourself on one of coach operators or hire a car if you want to see Stonehenge.

 

And is London safe?

Yes, it is by all means!
