I am a native Californian and my absolute favorite thing to do is TRAVEL! 

A little bit about myself. I am 71, married, have 3 children, and 5 grandchildren. My husband and I will be traveling to the U.K. in September 2017. Cardiff, Bristol, and London. We will have 4 days in London and we would love to take day trips on the train to the country and visit the beautiful sights. We welcome suggestions and look forward to meeting everyone here on Pictures of England.

Hi Diane, welcome to the Pictures of England website.

Have you considered the city of Bath? It's a beautiful city, with lots of fantastic georgian architecture and is home to the amazing Roman Baths. There is also a stunning Abbey there and you could have a spot of lunch at the world famous Sally Lunns. About 1:30 hours from London by train I believe, and is not far from Bristol which is already on your itinerary. Here are a few links -

 I'd also suggest heading one day off into the Cotswolds. It's beautiful region of England, famous for its golden stone and quaint little villages surrounded by wonderful countryside. Villages like Bourton on the Water, Lower Slaughter, and the town of Stow on the Wold are all well worth a look. 

Another recommendation would be Stratford upon Avon, birthplace of the great Bard himself - William Shakespeare. 

Also, Oxford and Blenheim Palace.

Have you been to England before?
