Driving from Bern to London(LHS vs. RHS)

Hi all,
My husband & I decided to that he would drive to London from Bern for our holiday road trips. Will there be any problem to drive around with a LHS driver seat car in London? Anyone with interesting experiences to share and tips? Thanks!

Hopefully the passenger is also a driver and can help with sighting for overtaking.

No problem at all on motorways. As TiMow says, it becomes difficult if you get onto smaller roads and want to overtake.

I once drove over in a rented van to collect some furniture, and found that getting onto some of the bigger roundabouts (such as the ones you often get when coming off the motorway) was a real problem. The tapering of the slip road onto the roundabout, combined with the absence of rear windows in the van, meant that I really could not see far enough to my right and slightly behind to work out if the coast was clear.

Generally fine the biggest challenge is going in and out of car parks with boom gate ticket machines. Make sure you have a passenger that can reach the machine
