PHOTOGRAPHY

Light: London is not renowned for its bright sunshine and the tall buildings create a lot of shadow, so pack plenty of 200 ASA-speed film.

Where you can photograph: Most museums will not allow you to take pictures. Check first.

Where to buy film: Film and camera batteries are readily available from tourist shops. Rapid-developing services are also widely available.

WHEN DEPARTING

Remember to contact the airport on the day before leaving to ensure the flight details are unchanged.

If travelling by ferry you must check-in no later than the time specified on your ticket.
