Packing

You can find basic tips for packing for London here.

Items to Make Sure You Pack

  • Clothes for layering (it will be colder than Atlanta)
  • Comfortable shoes for walking (we’ll be walking a lot!)
    • I recommend two pairs that hit your feet in different places, at least one of which is water resistant
  • Rain coat or poncho
  • Small umbrella
  • Power outlet adapters/converters (learn more here)
    • Note: U.S. hair dryers, flat irons, and curling irons do not necessarily work properly when run through a UK adapter. Converters are a safer bet, but it’s generally best to avoid using these U.S.-manufactured products while overseas.

Checked Baggage vs. Carry-Ons

  • Delta will allow you to check 1 bag for free (under 50 lbs); 2nd bag is $100. Learn about checked baggage regulations here.

Lost luggage happens; if you can carry-on only, I recommend it!

  • If you carry on, you can have 1 rolling bag and 1 personal item (backpack, purse, etc.)  Learn more about carry-on regulations here.
  • If you choose to carry-on liquids, you are limited on the size and amount you are allowed to check.  Learn about the TSA regulations here.
