When To Visit London


London Weather

Leicester Square


As I'm sure you've heard, London weather can be quite unpredictable. We Londoners are known to regularly carry both our sunglasses and an umbrella. But London weather is never so extreme as to detract from all the great things to do in the city.

The seasons change gradually, and Winter can appear to still be happening when we should be into Spring, but the weather is never so bad to stop you planning a trip to London.

The hottest time of the year is normally August, when the peak temperature can be 30°C (90°F) but the average in August is about 22°C (70°F).

London is an all-year-round destination, so major attractions are not seasonal. We do see a large increase in visitors in July and August so why not try and visit at a different time of the year to avoid the overcrowding?

London weather is generally mild, just remember to bring a lightweight raincoat to keep in your day-pack. There's so much to do in London, both indoors and outdoors, never worry if you have to change your plans - you will always find something happening in this vibrant city!
