I am so excited because this past weekend, Spencer and I booked our tickets to go to England and Scotland in May!
I can’t wait. It has been a dream of mine to go to the UK for as long as I can remember. Truly! I am really looking forward to all of the historical places we are going to visit, especially those related to the honors thesis I’m writing for school on the Glorious Revolution and empire in colonial New England. We are planning on spending five days in London, and then a few days in other English cities (perhaps Bath, where my sweet reader-turned-friend Louise is from!) before heading up to Scotland.
Here’s the list of places we’re going to go.
- Westminster Abbey
- The Churchill War Rooms and the Imperial War Museum
- Kensington Palace
- The British Library (there is a supposedly amazing exhibit on the Magna Carta I am really excited for!)
- House of Parliament
- The London Eye
- Hyde Park
- The West End
- The Harry Potter Studio Tour (obvi!)
- Edinburgh Castle
- Bath and the Cotswolds
What do you think? Also, if you all have trips for long-haul flights and UK travel, I’d love to hear them! Can’t wait to share more with you as we get closer to the trip!
