7 Tips for Planning a Trip to the UK


Visiting the UK can be an unforgettable experience if the trip is planned properly. On the other hand, a poorly planned trip can leave you feeling as though you didn't get to see everything you wanted to. If you're anticipating a trip to the UK in the near future, consider the following seven tips that will help you have a better time during your stay:

1. Get Ready to Drive in the UK
If you're going to be staying for a week or more, chances are you'll be driving at one point or another. It would be a good idea to become familiar with UK traffic laws and driving practices before you arrive. Fortunately, you can take a driving theory test online to quiz yourself on the rules of the road.

2. Plan Your Itinerary
Once you're prepared to drive in the UK, it is a good idea to go ahead and choose the main destinations you want to see first. You don't want to be spending time doing research when you could be out seeing the sights, so be sure to get this out of the way beforehand. You can use sites such as TripAdvisor UK to discover the most popular attractions in the area(s) you'll be visiting.

3. Make Reservations
Now that you now where you'll be headed upon arrival, it would be a good idea to book hospitality and dining reservations in advance. This will not only get you the best possible price, it'll also save you from possible disappointment by ensuring that your spot is reserved. Booking in advance is especially important if you plan on eating at a specific restaurant or staying at a specific hotel on a certain date or at an exact time.

4. Review Safety Concerns
Be sure to lookup travel advisories and safety concerns for the UK. You'll want to be aware of high crime areas and become familiar with UK laws and culture. This information can usually be found on visitor information or tourism sites or even at the airport.

5. Pack the Necessities
Make sure you're bringing everything that will be needed to facilitate a comfortable and safe trip. This might include a first aid kit, plenty of clothing, electronic devices and accessories, and several forms of payment.

6. Create a Schedule
Now that you're almost fully prepared, it's time to create a schedule that will be easy to adhere to in order to get the most out of your allotted time in the UK. Be realistic and don't try to cram too much sightseeing into one day. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy each destination/attraction before moving onto the next.

7. Prepare to Experience UK Culture
Finally, you may want to learn about key aspects of UK culture, such as the language differences, food and entertainment features, and the customs of people who reside in the UK. Studying the culture before arriving will help you avoid any miscommunication or confusion.



Overall, don't worry too much about planning the perfect trip. If you're following the seven basic steps above you should have no problem adapting and adjusting as you go along.
