What to bring on a Great British Trip
Whenever you come to the UK, be sure to bring some warm clothes. Though we have been known to have a few hot days, we have to admit that the weather here is somewhat unpredictable and it’s advisable to make sure you have at least a few warm clothes, a waterproof jacket and an umbrella in your bag, even if you are coming at the height of summer!
If you’re touring around a fair bit and spending time on coaches and trains, as much fun as it is to look out of the windows there’s only so many green fields you can take in a day! It’s advisable to bring some gadgets, games or books to keep you entertained. MP3 players and small games consoles are ideal for this sort of thing.
Using a foreign mobile or cell phone when abroad can be a costly business, particularly if you need to make a few calls (phone home or even call for a taxi!) and SMS. In our holiday pack we include a UK sim card which, when inserted into an old mobile or cell phone will cost you dramatically less. It also means if people call you you’re not the one footing the bill.
In most of the UK, it’s very safe and you can wander round without giving much thought at all to security. There are however a few situations where it’s always wise to take precautions such as a bustling London Underground or a busy city centre shopping mall. Be aware of how much cash you’re carrying around and always keep a credit card for emergencies in the hotel safe!
So easily forgotten but a UK 3 pin adapter (nb. it’s different to the European plug!) is a must. It can be bought here of course but it’s much cheaper (and more convenient) to bring it along in the first place!
