  1. Peak Season

    June to August

    While the temperatures in England might only peak to an average high of 22°C in some parts of the country, during the months of June to July is when England comes alive. With increased hours of sunlight through the warmer months, public spaces become filled with picnic-goers and seaside areas become packed with locals (and visitors) enjoying their dose of sunshine. It is worth noting that accommodation rates are much higher – especially in August during the school holiday period. Take time to explore the Chelsea Flower Show, Wimbledon among other music festivals at Hyde Park or Victoria Park.

  2. Low Season

    December to February

    Over the winter months, the average temperature will drop to only 3°C in some parts of England, however rain showers will be frequent and are to be expected. Up north, snow is expected to fall frequently whereas this rarely occurs in London. Visitors will need to be aware of reduced daylight hours over the winter months and this may cause a slight disruption to sightseeing activities. The good news is that accommodation rates are much lower, and museums will see much fewer crowds. In December, there are many Christmas markets, including Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park.
