    What to bring with?

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: Luggage with wheels is always a good idea, wherever you are travelling.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Whether snowy/wet/sunny/warm or cold weather, layer your clothing.
    Wear thermal underwear (these are easily bought at the local clothing shops), with warm leggings and a top under a toasty jacket for the cold. I have my trusty grey duffle coat, plus a white snow jacket for this type of weather, and they are a godsend!
    Wear flat shoes that have a good grip, as when it is snowing, and afterwards, when it is sludge, it's really difficult to walk and keep your balance!
    Always remember to bring a cap/hat that covers your head and neck for when it gets hot, as well as sunglasses.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Sunscreen (Factor 35 is the minimum factor I use, no matter what the weather is), headache tablets and usual little things like some plasters for blisters, cotton wool, germolene etc.

    Photo Equipment: Your camera, with charger, and a EUROPEAN plug extension.

    Miscellaneous: Have a map of the area handy, plus a local bird, flower and tree book. For this you also need a pair of good quality binoculars

    Luggage and bags: A small backpack is handy for carrying you camera and book!

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Some of the streets are cobbled so a good flat pair of shoes is a good idea.
    Also as we are in the UK with a very temperate and temperemental climate some rain gear is always a good idea!!

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: You can get most things in the pharmacies and suoermarkets here.

    Photo Equipment: Bring loads of film, and poss batteries although we do have a few good photographic shops here.

    Miscellaneous: A guidebook would be essential to help you understand the history of the buildings. You can get them at any of the main bookshops in town or elsewhere before you travel.
