Weather

 

Talking about the weather is a national pastime and source of fascination. The climate is hugely unpredictable, oscillating between heavy rain and scorching sunshine within the space of minutes. Be prepared to expect all four seasons in one day and dress accordingly!

Winter

December - February

London is a magical place in winter as streets sparkle with fairy lights and the city is occasionally blanketed under layers of snow and ice.
 
London is one of the warmest places in the country but it is still advisable to dress warmly with hats, scarves, gloves and boots.

Spring

March – May

London comes alive in the spring. Temperatures creep back up and the capital is bathed in glorious warm sunshine. There are spring showers in March and April and it is wise to bring a waterproof jacket with you.
 
This is probably the most unpredictable time of year and hardest to dress for. The best advice is to select a range of winter and summer items and make sure you have at least one warm jumper with you.

Summer

June - August

London is glorious in the summer. The capital is full of luscious parks and welcoming open spaces and there is a wealth of outdoor entertainment to enjoy, but be warned, the weather is always unpredictable at this time or year!
 
Temperatures can skyrocket in summer but they can also remain temperate and pleasant. Pack for summer but make sure you bring a light jacket and a waterproof just in case it rains!

Autumn


September – November

Autumn is a time of poetic beauty in London. The weather can still have a mild summery feel, the parks are awash with colour and fireworks light up the sky to celebrate Bonfire Night.
 
A winter chill creeps into the air around the end of October as the leaves start to fall. Bring warm clothes and a good coat.
