You don't have to worry about the frequency unless you are running a motor that is frequency dependent, so that's not an issue, but no, the transformers won't change the frequency unless you have something akin to an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).Originally posted by OperaTenor:
I believe there are little transformers sold to accomodate the higher voltage and lower frequency. However, I seem to recall they aren't to be trusted. I recall Piq telling a story about a curling iron that could melt lead even though it was plugged into such a device.

I watched the Tattoo when I lived in the UK on TV. Since I was a dirt poor G.I. I couldn’t afford tickets in those days and I always promised myself that someday I would sit in a front row (well, second row in “A” Section, “B” Section is the best section but was already sold out but “A" ain’t bad) and watch the show live.
Any other suggestions for our visit? We (the MRHYN, the twins and I) spent 14 days camping in Scotland in 1980 (it rained 10 days) We did the east coast. This time we’re starting in Edinburgh and doing a circle going up the east coast across the west coast and finally winding back up in Edinburgh to see the Tattoo before we catch the Caledonian Sleeper back to London.
I have a copy of the AA”s Hand Picked Tours in Britain first published in 1977. It is the best UK tour guide I have ever found and even though 30 years old I found in 2004 when we visited England that the tours are still accurate and only one small tour location was closed.
I look forward to testing it again.
