What to Wear In London
Most travelers put too much effort in finding their accommodations and making reservation after reservation that they tend to forget the suitable clothes they should bring together with them. Just like most of the parts in the world, London does have seasons. However, the only difference is that you can never be so sure of what kind of weather it will be like in each season. If it rains, do not put on the waterproof clothing because you’ll never know if you’ll miss the rain. Instead of that, take an umbrella with you. Most Londoners do that. When you’re in London, it is more about what not to wear rather that what should be worn.
Try the Pubs in London
When people come to London, all they could think about is trying the traditional fish and chips as well as traditional London pubs and a few glasses of good drinks. We can suggest one or two pubs from each of the most famous places. About 300 meter from Big Ben, head to the quite small pub called the Red Lion where you will get served with good beer. And if you are near Trafalgar Square, you can always go to one of London’s best pubs in the area called The Harp or even the Ship & Shovel where you’ll find the pub uniquely splitting into two halves. If you’re still looking for the best Fish and Chips, all you have to do is find huge sign saying “Traditional Fish & Chips” across London.(Image by Chauncey Wilson)
