What should I pack when moving to Margate?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Margate to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Margate, you should pack clothing suitable for a temperate maritime climate, including warm clothing for the winter months and lighter clothing for the summer. Rain gear, such as waterproof jackets and umbrellas, are essential due to the frequent rain. Pack your important documents, such as your passport, driver's license, birth certificate, and any necessary visas or work permits. If you're moving for work or study, remember to bring any relevant paperwork. Bring your electronics, including your laptop, phone, and chargers. If your devices aren't compatible with UK voltage and plug type, you'll need to pack appropriate adapters or converters. Pack any prescription medications you take regularly, along with copies of your prescriptions. It's also a good idea to bring a basic first aid kit. If you're planning to cook, you may want to bring some of your favorite non-perishable food items that might be hard to find in the UK. Don't forget personal items that make you feel at home, such as photos, favorite books, or small keepsakes. Lastly, pack enough toiletries to last for the first few weeks, until you can find where to buy your preferred brands in Margate," explained one expat living in Margate, England.
