    that deffo sounds like a cooler plan than spending a whole week in London.
    Whitby is also great fun if you are up North

    Traveling in a triangular formation is always a good plan....unless it’s near Bermuda then I’d probably skip that.

    After a bit of back n' forth, I'm realizing that travelling from London to Bath, up to York and then returning to London is FAR too much for a 5 day trip. With that in mind, I'm leaning towards London and Bath. That way we can hit Stonehenge on the way to or from Bath. I'd love to see York as I am a very big viking nerd and the battle of Stamford Bridge took place just outside the city so it'd be cool to see but we just don't have enough time and I don't want us to be rushed in any way.

    with that in mind do you guys have recommendations on travel to and from? I've been pointed towards the Oyster card and wanted some other opinions. Cheers.

    Hey Andy, have you narrowed down any dates for the visit yet?

    Just got back last Saturday. Travelled from the 10th to the 18th! Stopped in Iceland and hung out in London from Monday til Friday! Had an absolute blast!

    Ah shoot, just missed ya then! Hope the trip was a great one. Might not be much in the way of toy scene here, but still plenty of other cool things to checkout. Iceland is great too, definitely one on my 'destination' list, but sadly I have only ever made it to the airport!

    No worries, brother. The trip was definitely memorable, filled lots of incredible moments. I think visiting Stonehenge and the Roman baths are a moment that will stay with me forever since I'm such a lover of history. I can't tell you how many people, including a handful of individuals from the UK who downplayed Stonehenge to us. "Oh it's just a couple big rocks next to a highway". No. A thousand times "NO!" Stonehenge blew my mind. Also the Tower of London was incredible. Hell all of it was incredible, I wish I could describe it better but I definitely need to go back.

    Also steak and red wine pie is one of my new favorite things. Cheers.
