London is a great city, especially if you have all the right tips for your trip. Here are some of the most useful.
Seasons are important. If it’s winter, you need to take lots of warm clothing with you because London can get very cold at that time of year.
During the summer you should take a raincoat and an umbrella because it rains a lot during this season. The English summer has got a bad reputation for a very good reason. If you live somewhere relatively warm you should pack several warm items just in case, as the weather can turn quickly.
Do you want to hire a car? You need to know that in England people drive on the other side of the road. This has been the cause of many accidents involving foreigners.
Don’t forget when you drive through London that many of the roads are toll roads, you should check your map before driving. Some streets and districts in the center are pedestrian only or one-way, which is difficult enough for locals, so you can imagine what it’s like for tourists.
Check before you fly to find out where your airport is in relation to your final destination. Many of London’s airports are quite far away from town and you should know how you are going to get into town before you leave.
Make sure you bring a lot of money as London isn’t cheap when you want to go to the tourist sites and shops. Also, you should change your money at home because many money exchanges in London will try to scam you.
As long as you are prepared, you will have a marvelous time in London as it is an amazing city with many historical buildings and a fascinating past.
