Tips For Planning Your Move To London

When you come to London, some things about clothing that you should remember will be included in this article.

Winter Wear

Jackets, are yes we mean more than one! It doesn’t get terribly cold here, but we do have cold spells. So pack accordingly. Winter jacket, Rain Jacket and a Summer Jacket – at a minimum!

If it’s going to be raining, make sure you have something waterproof. A light jacket for during the Summer – when the sun goes down here the temperature drops! I would bring at least one pair of shoes that can get wet, these can serve all year round.  These can be leather boots, or they can be durable tennis shoes, like my leather Converses, or whatever works for you. You can even go ahead and spray water-repellent onto whatever shoes you want to bring, just to make sure that they’re good for walking.

Dressing up

It is a good idea for everyone who comes to London to bring a some nice outfits. You’re likely to be going out after work, on the weekends – and people in London usually dress to impress. If you’re in your casual clothes, you’re going to stand out.

Europeans, Londoners and Brits alike do not wear sweatshirts and sweatpants out in public, except once in a while when they’re going to the gym. So leave your sweatshirts and sweatpants at home or you can wear them for pyjamas. But you’ll stick out like a sore thumb if you wear them in London.

Try to go with some fitted pants or trousers that are a little bit nicer. Jeans can work in some situations but go for the darker ones. And for your feet, just have anything besides tennis shoes/sneakers. You also want to

Sundresses and Tank tops

In the summer, there’s a decent chance that it’s not going to be warm enough for you to wear sundresses and tank tops. You can bring them, but be aware you’ll likely need to layer. In fact just make sure you bring lots of layers for all year round!

The temperatures can vary widely here in London, from day to night, so layering up is going to make sure that you’re not too hot during the day and you’re not too cold at night. Also, it gets really hot down on the underground even when it’s freezing outside, so you might need to peel some off while you’re sat on the tube.

Just buy is here!

Finally, when you’re packing for your move to London, remember that you can get anything that you could ever possibly need here. And we even have stores that you’ll recognize, like H&M and Top Shop. So if you forget anything, or you find you haven’t packed as you should have, just go pick something up at the store.


Electrical Plugs and Adaptors

In London, you will 100% need a travel adapter. Remember that we have different plugs here than in the US and most of the world, really. So for any of the things you’re bringing along that are dual-voltage, make sure you have an adaptor that you can plug into it. Note that the electrical plugs here in England are different from the rest of Europe, so if you’re going and travelling the rest of Europe, you’re going to need different adaptors from the ones that you’ll use in the rest of Europe.
