United Kingdom: Climate & Weather


The United Kingdom benefits from an Oceanic climate: Gentle and fairly humid with few severe contrasts and little marked seasons.

The ocean winds bring more rain to the west and the Gulf Stream promotes cool winter temperatures.

Summer is generally warm but not hot and pullovers and rain garments should be kept handy all year round.

The best time to visit is generally at the end of spring with a good amount of sunshine, especially on the eastern coast, which will provide you with the opportunity to enjoy the incomparable charm of the flowering plants.

Visiting between June and September will generally ensure a mild climate perfect for gentle, enjoyable walks.
