WE ALL LOVE TO TRAVEL – but we can all agree that having to drag our luggage around London all day is simply not enjoyable 😩
Just imagine flying to London but arriving hours before check-in at your hotel or Airbnb. Or maybe you have an early check-out but your flight is late afternoon/evening.
You shouldn’t sit around and wait for the check-in/check-out at the hotel or apartment when there is much good stuff to do in London and great attractions to visit such as London Bridge, Covent garden, Wembley Stadium, British Museum or the great London Eye
But, you quickly find out that carrying luggage around while exploring the city is exhausting 😒 so what should you do?
You need to find a quick and safe luggage locker to store your bags or one of the many great offers from luggage storage platforms offering luggage storage from local stores, cafées, and hotels.
That’s why we made this ultimate luggage storage guide on how to find the best, cheapest, and most flexible on-demand luggage storage providers in London as of 2020.
