Before you travel we recommend that you:
Label your luggage clearly with your name and address in Wiltshire.

You will have to carry your luggage at some point, so try to pack only as much as you can carry.
With a damp climate in Britain and varying temperatures. It's best to come prepared with some warm clothes. Wearing several layers of lightweight clothes (t-shirts, shirts, sweaters) is a good way to keep warm. You can buy a wide range of clothing at reasonable prices in the UK.
