Bucket List



What to expect

LANGUAGE

English is the official language and the first language of the majority of the population. However, the country is culturally and linguistically diverse, with more than 100 different languages spoken by its residents & visitors. 

ELECTRICITY

In England the standard voltage is 230 V and the frequency is 50 Hz. That’s the standard voltage in the UK, Europe, Australia and most of Asia and Africa; If you are traveling from the US you will need an adaptor.

CURRENCY

The Pound Sterling is the official currency of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland , Euros might be accepted in some places, but is not common. 1 USD equals 0.80 pounds. You can exchange your currency directly on the back or withdraw it from the ATMs. Debits cards are also widely accepted.

SAFETY

England is a very safe country. If you go to big cities like London, the crime rate goes up. Watch out for pickpockets and hustlers in crowded areas.

How to get around England

By plane

England is home to 40 airports. London alone has 5. Flying is a really good way to get around quickly, and there are a couple budget airlines like Ryanair and EasyJet that can help you do this without breaking your wallet. 

By Car

Driving around England can be an inspiring experience, but we would only recommend it if you are planning on visiting the countryside. Traffic can be very stressful in the main cities, especially in London. 

By Bus

Buses are an alternative if you want to save some money. The famous red double-decker bus is a good and inexpensive way to explore London, and there are many coach operators offering intercity routes and affordable rates.

By Train

England has a vast train network that can take you almost everywhere. You can check out prices and itineraries in here: RailEurope.com. The trains are connected with London’s subway or “The Tube”. Public transportation in England if really good and well connected by rail, road and river transport.


Visa Policy

If you are a national of the EU, United States, Canada or Australia, you don’t need to apply for a tourist visa to enter the United Kingdom. Visas, usually for visits of up to six months, are granted on entry, when you present your passport.

I would recommend to visit the UK’s website: Do I Need a UK Visa before your trip, as there have been a long of changes going on lately.
