My wife and I are considering taking a summer vacation to England again in 2019. The plan would likely be to spend 4-5 days in London, and then head north to the Lake District. However, I'm hoping to get some input/feedback/ideas from those who've been before, or even those who live in the UK.
- My initial thought would be to rent a car in London and make the drive up. Is this the best/easiest way, or should we take the train to a more northern city and rent a car there?
- How many days would you recommend spending up there? My wife and I would primarily be looking to do scenic day hikes, returning to a rental in the evening (i.e. no camping).
- What are some good places to visit? I've done some googling, but would like to know what those of you with first-hand experience enjoyed and would recommend (or on the other hand, would not recommend)?
