Hi Im going to London to study abroad this semester, any tips on what to pack?

Hi! Whenever I go to England it’s to my boyfriends house, which is about an hour from London, and it tends to be a lot colder. Though you will be there for the Fall/most likely beginning of winter, London is a warmer area of England.

I recommend packing:

  1. Jeans, leggings, sweatpants/pajama pants
  2. Sweaters, rain jacket, jackets (a thin and a thick one)
  3. Scarves, a pair of gloves, and a hat (for November/December time)
  4. Nice tops, long sleeve tops, casual tops 
  5. Booties, boots, rain boots, comfy walking shoes, sneakers, sandals, flats, wedges
  6. Dresses, skirts, shorts, tights
  7. International wall plug, portable charger
  8. Umbrella
  9. Neutral colored clothes (I rarely see people wearing bright colors or white in London)

Packings tips

  1. Pack your heaviest items (shoes, jewelry, makeup) in your carry on
  2. Don’t bother packing items like lotion, face wash, razor, shampoo, hairspray, etc. It takes up a lot of space and you can just buy it there
  3. Wear your heaviest clothes on the plane to save space (leggings, rain boots, jacket, etc…you can always take it off once you get through security, but it’ll take up a lot of space in a bag)
  4. Keep in mind the weather, it tends to be pretty cool, cloudy, and rainy most of the time 
  5. Don’t pack your bags full incase you want to do some shopping while you’re there. There is nothing worse than having to pay hundreds of dollars for an overweight/extra bag 

Hope this helped:) Let me know if you have any other travel/Europe type questions. I love traveling and have been to London at least 5 times!
