The United Kingdom is infamous for its wet weather conditions and since you will be living in London, you should be informed of what to expect. Londoners are known to regularly carry both sunglasses and an umbrella, but London weather is never so extreme as to detract from all the great things to do in the city. There are four seasons in the United Kingdom. i.e. from March to May is Spring; June to August is Summer; September to November is Autumn and December to February is Winter. So, if you are not used to these kind of weather conditions you should familiarise with the different weather changes to enable you to cope while settling into your new home.

In Spring, the countryside is normally in full bloom as the sunlight increases. 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 is a time for outings and holidays as the temperatures are hot most of the time. 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 (again), the weather is always unpredictable at this time of 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!

In Autumn you will see leaves begin to change colour, transforming England’s landscape into a pallet of beautiful colours. Winter time brings with it snow and frost, and the temperature can drop below freezing point but rarely drops much below. 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. 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.
