  • If you are traveling from countries that are inside of the European union, you can bring in fruit, vegetables or meat.
  • If you are traveling from a country that is not included in the European union, you will need to follow different rules. Once the UK exits the European Union, the rules are sure to change.
  • Right now both pornography and bags of ice are banned from being shipped into England as are Christmas crackers (holiday popper).
  • While plants and parts of plants are not prohibited from being shipped into the United Kingdom, they may require the appropriate Agricultural Department in the United Kingdom to issue an appropriate import document.

So long as you follow the importing rules, your shipment should go smoothly.

4.Due to superstitions. The Tower of London houses six ravens that have at least one wing clipped. The original ravens were placed there by Charles II as a way to protect the tower.  Just in case one raven takes flight and does not come back, there is a spare raven ready to take its place.
