More castles than you can shake a cudgel at, lush countryside, and numerous characterful towns / villages. Ludlow is a stand-out. Several ' black and white ' villages in Herefordshire, crammed with ancient buildings, and authentic pubs.

I endorse this post, and lob in Worcestershire too.

If you want to avoid London, why not go round it instead, and take the "Grand M25 Tour" of delightful satellite towns like Reading, Crawley, Swindon, Slough and High Wycombe?

How long have you been running Euthanasia Coach Tours, Penk?
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

You'll find absolutely stunning scenery in North Wales, you could drive through the Berwyn Mountains on to Snowdonia.


Exactly this. Wales is a gem.

Still thinking about going. Also thinking about other option in the US.
