Packing for a trip is always tricky hey?? Here are a few tips which should help you along (you’ll also find this info on your pre-departure information).
As a general rule, pack light! People invariably bring more than they need, and you will have to
transport it around before and after the trip, as well as in and out of the accommodation during the trip!
The following clothing list is suggested, based on our experience:
1 pair of walking shoes
1 pair of smart casual shoes
1 pair thongs / jandals / flip-flops
2 pairs jeans / trousers
2 pairs shorts / skirts
4 shirts / t-shirts
2 sweaters / jumpers
Smart casual evening wear
1 rainproof jacket
1 warm jacket
Underwear and socks!
General things to pack:
Basic medical kit (inc. plasters, aspirin etc)
Whilst towels are provided in all hotels, they can sometimes be small in certain countries, so it is useful to bring your own.
Please be aware that most things you might want to bring, for instance towel, washing powder, insect repellent etc. are easily purchased in Europe or in London before your trip starts. Entry into some religious sights, such as Cathedrals, requires clothing to cover knees, chest and shoulders.
Some hotels may have a laundry service which you can utilize if you wish, but many passengers generally find it easy enough to wash their clothes in the hotel sink.
Have a fantastic trip!
