Visiting the UK

If it is your first time visiting the UK, here are some information that may come in handy.
– The Brits have a different language lingo. First time travelers might get confused when someone tells them to head to the tube or stay on the pavement. The “tube” is the British equivalent of the subway, while the “pavement” is known as the sidewalk.
– In the UK, people drive on the left side of the road. When crossing the streets, always check your right for approaching cars. On escalators, see to it that you stand on your right and walk on your left.
– Do check the local Tourist Information Centre (TIC) for information on nearby tourist spots. You can also ask there for directions, in case you forgot your way. In addition, they can help you book a room at a local bed and breakfast, or pre-book them based on your travel itinerary.
