"Nothing out of the ordinary" London Packing List Tip by Dabs
London What to Pack: 211 reviews and 121 photos
Luggage and bags: The tube is the most economical way to travel from Heathrow so wheeled luggage is the way to go, just make sure you can pick it up in case you have to go up some stairs.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It's always useful to have an umbrella and/or raincoat
Don't be afraid to pack shorts if you are traveling in the summer, you will see both tourists and locals wearing them if it's hot enough.
Don't worry about your feet being fashionable, you will walk a lot in London. Wear whatever shoes are comfortable for walking, I usually bring sandals and a pair of Merrells for rainy days in the summer, hiking boots in the cooler months. Tennis shoes are fine if that's what you are comfortable in.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Hotels generally do not have wash clothes, pack your own, do without or buy when you get there
Miscellaneous: I always pack my Streetwise London map, it's laminated so it's very durable
