Summer in the UK is from June to August, and winters are from November to March, April or even May. Unfortunately, the UK is not known for offering beautiful, consistent weather conditions! The climate is fairly similar across the UK, but weather conditions can and do change rapidly. It is possible to see all 4 seasons in a single day!
In order to cope with the changing weather, we recommend that you do as the locals do and prepare for all weather conditions. This means wearing layered clothing, bringing a spare sweatshirt and always having an umbrella and rain jacket to hand. Summer temperatures can reach over 30°C in the south, so visitors in July and August should remember to bring a hat and sunscreen.
