The Best Time to Travel
London’s climate is mild throughout the year offering travellers the opportunity to visit when it suits them most. The spring months from March to May bring with them wet but softer temperatures, lush greenery, and flowers in bloom. While the Easter weekend often means closures as well as celebrations. Summer (Jun-Aug), along with warm weather, brings music festivals, outdoor cinemas and many great outdoor activities worth experiencing. As the autumn months (Sep-Nov) settle in the weather can often be mild with early mornings and evening much cooler. As the days get shorter and the nights longer look out for Christmas light which begin to appear. Winter in London can be cold, frosty, wet and windy but the Christmas season is well worth experiencing. Visitors often stay a little longer to experience the spectacular New Year’s celebrations and, of course, the January sales.
