Hi All,

Firstly, after flicking through this site for a bit, it seems that it and i will become best mates over the next 8 or 9 months... looks excellent. well done to all who contribute. i look forward to having my say on a things should the need arise. smile.gif

My Wife and I have booked a month -long stint in the UK and ireland for October this year. we'll be in London for 5 nites, the hire a car from Heathrow, then drive around the place for 3 weeks, then back to London where we come home. (this bit is making me frown already).

We have been before but only spent a couple of days in London and a day trip to Liverpool before heading on a Tour of Continental Europe.... Loved all of it.

What I am hoping for is some honest advice on the driving part of our holiday. As far as I can tell, driving through the country (ie: outside London) is quite easy and looks unreal with the great contryside etc... but we all know that looks can be decieving. We have b and b accomodation passes booked for the whole 3 weeks we'll be driving, so we can choose where to stay on the run, no one room is ever booked in advance so that freedom should be fun.

at the moment we'll be heading south from london to brighton, then right around the coastline and up into wales, over to ireland, the back to wales where we'll continue to drive all around the place. any MUST SEEs you would recommend?

well, Thank you. Any help we r given is greatly appreciated and i look forward to getting to know u guys.. smile.gif
Thanks again
