Amidst the opening of the Elizabeth Line, and the chaos of train and tube strikes across the country, these items may be essential to get you through your journey...

In the wake of the pandemic, hybrid working and the Elizabeth Line may be giving London some breathing space, but commuterdom still prevails! Londoners bear the brunt of commute times, with an average of 74 minutes getting into the office every day. Not packing correctly for the commute can make this feel double the time! In last week's record breaking heatwave, the Central Line recorded temperatures of 36°C, leaving commuters sweaty and in the search for water, so with the summer well and truly in swing - why make it any harder for yourself?
