Round Trip in Europe for 16 DaysG'Day all,
I am planning to travel to London in Nov and would like to visit nearby countries as well. Can someone suggest which are the best countries to go to and make a round trip back to London?
I like to shop, eat and visit attractions in those countries. Please help!

1London has air links with lots of nearby countries. To see which countries are nearby I suggest you look at a map.
Once that has been done, I would see what attractions are available in those countries that take your fancy.

4Perhaps go and pick up some travel brochures and see what itineraries are recommended for 16 days. On my first visit to Europe I did 10 days from Budapest to Paris with a travel company.
You could see a few major cities in 16 days. Start with London, then Edinburgh, fly over to Amsterdam, train either south towards Paris and then to Barcelona, Madrid or Rome. Alternatively after Amsterdam head east towards Hamburg, Berlin, Warsaw and then fly down to Prague, loop back towards Vienna and rail across to Munich.
The Alps are spectacular.
For planning your tickets for air look at skyscanner and for rail try db.de
Have a great trip.

7My strategy is to make a list of major cities I want to see and then try to string them together via smaller cities. For example, if you chose London - Paris - Munich, you might fly London to Brugge, then take the train to Paris and by Freiburg or Zurich on the way the Munich.
Try ryanair.com for sometimes insanely cheap ticket prices, or just the regular airlines at expedia. For train rides, I like eurorail.com. You can get a pass for a few countries and usually save a lot of money.
