Chances are if you’re heading on a last-minute camping trip, it’s because the forecast is going to be good. But even if it’s not, that’s no reason to put you off. Like Sir Ranulph Fiennes said, “there’s no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.”
With that in mind, check the weather and pack accordingly. Think shorts and lightweight tees for daytime in warm weather and hoodies and fleeces to cosy up by the fire at night when the temperature drops. For trips in cooler weather, layering up is the key to staying warm, and you need to remember a hat, gloves and plenty of socks to protect your extremities.
And, don’t forget to pack a lightweight waterproof, because whatever the weather report says there’s always a chance of a downpour when you’re camping in the UK.
