A friend and I will be visiting England for the first time in May for 9 days. We're staying in London at the Park Plaza Victoria. After doing some research for weeks looking at soooo many hotels, this seemed to be the one I kept coming back to for location and preferred accommodation. Hope I made a good choice! We want to pack so much into this vacation as neither of us will probably have this opportunity again. We arrive early on a Monday morning and plan to do a lot of the major attractions in London on the first 3 days. On the 4th day we have a daytrip to Manchester....this was the best date for rates for train travel. The 5th day we plan on visiting the little town of Caston, Norfolk as this is where my friends ancestors originated from, so excited for her! Both these trains we will catch at Euston, London station. Haven't decided which day but we are planning to take the Eurostar escorted day trip to Paris, that is a must! We would also like to see Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, the Cotswolds and one of the must see museums. There are a lot of tours and anyone that has first hand experience on any of them, I would love to hear about it or any other suggestions would be great!
I think the biggest question going through my head right now is about transportation. Oyster Card, Travel Card? The travel card you get discounts on some attractions, so maybe that's our best bet, still not sure! I've read many articles how the London Pass is not worth the money, any input on that would be great too.
Also arriving at Heathrow at 6:30 a.m......take the tube or hire a pickup from the airport? I know the latter would probably more convenient or not??
We have a jam packed holiday planned I know but Hey we're going to England, have to make the most of it right! At the same time, still want to be thrifty and save where we can. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)
After we get off the train at Manchester, Picadilly, how far is it to the set of Coronation Street and what type of transportation do you recommend to get there? Do you recommend certain attractions as must see in Manchester?
Does the original house called norton towers still exist
Anyone have suggestions on a place to stay in the snowdonia area?
While my family and I are visiting the UK, we will have an opportunity to spend a couple days in Bath. While there we were looking at close places to visit that would be worth our while.

Group 1 (4 people) arrive from US in Terminal 1. We are to get to Terminal 4 to meet Group 2 that is arriving from US an hour later, where we will all pick up pre-arrange ground transport. So the plan is for Group 1 to claim baggage and take the Heathrow Express to Terminal 4. Two questions: 1) Will Group 1 have to clear customs in Terminal 1, and if so, will they still have access to the Heathrow Express? and 2) Where in Terminal 1 do you recommend that Group 1 and Group 2 try to meet? Thanks!
