London is one of the most visited cities in the world. If you are planning to go to London, it is a must that you prepare for your trip ahead. Regardless of what you wish to do– take a look at London’s majestic sceneries, know the history of the city, east the cuisines London has to offer or just chill out in pubs– preparation is needed.
One of the most controversial issue when traveling is to know what things you should pack for the trip. When it comes to London, the things that you should pack will be determined by the time of year as well as the season of your trip. By knowing what are the right things to bring for your trip, your trip will surely be a success.
When packing for a London trip, the first thing you need to do is to determine when will your trip be. Know what type of weather the city will be having during that time then pack accordingly. If you will be going summertime, you will be experiencing mild temperatures ranging from 2 to 6 degrees Celsius. On the other hand, wintertime means rain and dampness. You must keep in mind that London rarely experiences snow and ice.
When choosing a luggage, opt for one that is quite comfortable to carry around the city. All your clothing should be in the larger suitcase. On the other hand, any important documents, medications, gadgets, jewelries or cash should be contained on your carry-on bag. Another tip that you should remember is to try and choose your clothes wisely. It would be best for you to carry clothes that are easy to mix and match. When it comes to shoes, it would be best that you care only three pairs or less. Although this may sound hard especially for women, I would recommend that you bring a casual and comfy pair of shoes, a dinner shoes and comfortable boots for walking.
In the case that you are planning to buy souvenirs for your friends at home, it is wise for you to buy a collapsible bag so that you do not have to bring a bigger suitcase than necessary. This bag can be brought to the plane.
A few weeks before your trip, it would be best that you make some research as to what things you are not allowed to bring to the airport. The list of restricted items may include raw meat, fresh fruits and vegetables. Along with that, you are not allowed to bring big bottles of lotions, perfume and water on your carry-on.
It is best that you keep duplicate copies of your passport, birth certificate, ID’s and any other important documents that you have. Pack it up and enjoy your trip!
