How and What to Pack for a Trip To London

by Shruti Sharma Content Curator

Ah, London! The city of dreams, and the place where class meets elegance. It’s the city where millions of people visit each year, to enjoy its culture, vibrant spots, nightlife and cuisines. People often only consider what weather it is and pack accordingly. There are so many more factors involved in packing for the perfect trip.

Prioritise your space: Don’t pack everything

It is also important to find the right set of matching outfits, classic footwear, and the right accessories to bring with you. You want to look good in pictures, as well as find the right luggage weight to fly smart. You also don’t want to keep lugging around heavy bags as they can add stress to your trip. You should bring the essentials, as many of the things you need are available at great rates across the city.

Not only can you find deals on top London hotels, like The LaLiT London, but you can also find great offers on coats and scarves. Pack light, and make sure that you’re not going too heavy on your fly-in suitcase. Many airlines have restrictions that apply on weight limits, so picking the right airline with flexibility is important. You can pick up an extra suitcase at the airport itself if you find yourself above the limit.

Leave space for shopping

Packing more than needed is going to add a lot of excess headache and lack of space when you’re trying to shop around. You can’t bring back physical memories from London, as your suitcase would have already been full. You also can’t wear everything you carry as you won’t be in-fashion when you flaunt it in London city.

While roaming around Spitalfields Market or bargain hunting at King's Road, you might find the perfect thing that you’re looking for. You may get a sense of hesitation about whether it’s going to fit in the ride back home. That’s why it’s better to buy clothes in London rather than bring everything with you.

Packing in layers, rolling when necessary

Wrinkle-free clothes, like jeans and shorts, can be rolled into cylindrical shapes and stacked tightly in the suitcase. This prevents any unused space from going to waste and allows you to bring more clothes. You should also consider stacking up your clothes in layers, instead of in smaller bunches. This is so that you can lay out all your clothes and introduce new layers that fit neatly.

It’s important to have your hygiene essentials tucked inside a cloth bag so that you can manoeuvre it inside the suitcase. If you’re staying in some of the top hotels in London England, then you can buy anything you forgot in their stores. Bringing along any belts, bags or shoes will add extra gaps in the suitcase. That’s why you should bundle your belts inside the shoes and put as much as you can inside the bags
