You will potentially get much further, and travel more comfortably, on a train.
Does he have anything in particular he wants to see?
Mediaeval walls, Roman remains, magnificent cathedral (and Macdonald’s etc!)
Take a look at visiting Bath. The Roman Baths there are extensive and the presentation/educational components are engagingly presented. I could have spent a full day in the Baths alone. Much else there is architecture and Jane Austen/ Georgian social history which may not appeal to him; but the bridge and river viewscape is unique and interesting.
If he’s interested in Stonehenge, it’s worth the trip. I did an International Friends tour that included Stonehenge, the Glastonbury tor and it was a good day.
Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, HMS Victory Nelson flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1815, the Mary Rose, HMS Warrior Britain’s first Ironclad, and across the water by ferry the Submarine Museum with HMS Alliance. The ferry also takes a little trip around the harbour and you can see which Royal Navy vessels are in port.
Also the D-Day Museum, there’s actually enough there for several days.
The Imperial War Museum Duxford where it houses it’s aircraft collection, including the hall of American aircraft dedicated to the memory of the pilots based there durin WW2, and some armoured vehicles.
So many places to see in London you won’t have to go far unless you really want to eg if you go for the recommendation in #4 to visit Museum of Docklands I suggest catching the driverless DLR (Docklands Light Railway) to get there. It’s a fascinating journey from old to new London. Then return on the riverbus.
He may be too old (I’m not and I’m a lot older) but I like visiting the dinosaurs at Crystal Palace.
Thanks, been to Bath and Stonehedge with him 2 years ago and 3 years ago.
Some nice suggestions....thanks.
