Coming to the UK

What to bring with you when you travel.

What to Pack

Clothing

Clothing - Weather in the UK is highly variable and likely to change from day to day; temperatures range from 1°C – 5°C in winter and 20°C – 30°C in summer. It is a good idea to bring a selection of light clothes that you can wear in layers as well as some warm outer clothing and a waterproof coat or umbrella. Hats, gloves and scarves, as well as thick socks, are essential in the winter but can be bought at a reasonable price in the UK.

Electrical

We recommend you bring a mobile phone with you to the UK. In the UK, 13-amp sockets are commonly used which require three-pronged plugs. You may need an adaptor to make your devices compatible with UK sockets. Electrical items that you bring with you to the UK must have a CE certification marking and conform to UK standards.

Personal

It is a good idea to bring a few small items for your room that will remind you of home, such as photographs of family and friends, books, posters and other mementos, as these will help you to settle in and adjust to your new life in the UK.

Vintage photo albums and black and white family photos
