Favorite Places of England, 2

There are some trips that you look forward to all your life, and some that end up being unforgettable. This trip was both. After World Science Fiction, my husband, myself, and our friends spent 3 days in Yorkshire, 4 near Oxford and Bath and five days in London. Here are the last few highlights.
