Planning a trip can be a very stressful process, especially if you’re heading to the busiest city in Britain and you’re unsure of how to prepare. There will be a lot of questions that come to mind like what clothes to pack, what accessories to bring and how to make sure you can get around the city easily. Don’t worry because we’ve put together this ultimate packing guide so you can be fully prepared for your trip to London.
The type of clothes you take on your trip to London can depend on a variety of different things. Think about what it is you’re planning to do during your stay at the Park Grand Hotel Lancaster Gate and plan your outfits accordingly. If you’re planning on experiencing the nightlife, or eating at our luxury restaurant then be sure to pack a couple of nice outfits. If the weather forecast looks good then bring a pair of shorts or a skirt so you don’t get too hot while you’re walking through the city. London weather can be unreliable though, so be sure to take a coat and add layers just in case.
There are a few necessities that you’ll need to take with you wherever you go, so be sure to put them on your packing list. Basic toiletries like a toothbrush, deodorant and a hairbrush will make sure you can still carry out your morning hygiene routine. If you need any extra beauty accessories like hair straighteners or blow dryers then you’ll find multiple power outlets in your luxury suite at the Park Grand Hotel Lancaster Gate. A backpack or canvas shopping bag will come in handy on your shopping trips and will mean you won’t have to lug around lots of carrier bags. It’s worth mentioning the unreliable London weather again because any Londoner will tell you that an umbrella is a must-have accessory if you don’t want to get caught in a London shower.
London can be an expensive city to visit but there are ways you can reduce the impact on your bank account. Before you head to the capital do a little research online and look for discount cards and special offer coupons that can give you access to free attractions and reduce the cost of London locations. An Oyster Card is a must-have if you’re planning on moving around the city. It will allow you to use the Underground at a much lower cost than buying tickets as you travel, meaning you have more money to spend on other things.
These are not things you’ll need to pack in your suitcase but they’re just as important for helping you make the most of your London getaway. There are a number of travel-friendly apps that can help you navigate the busy streets of London. GPS-based location apps can help you easily find the attractions, venues and events you want to see. Weather forecast apps will give you real-time updates so you can plan your events around the weather. Make the most of the hundreds of free apps available on your smartphone.
