When to Visit

The United Kingdom has a temperate climate, meaning it can be visited any time of the year. If you prefer warm, long summer days for outdoor activities, the best time would be from June to August. However, do note that this period could see quite an increase in tourist traffic, especially in popular destinations like London and Scotland.

Spring (April to June) and autumn (September to November) are lovely too, offering pleasant temperatures and lower proportions of tourists. Winter months can be quite cold and days are much shorter, but you can enjoy charm-filled Christmas markets, especially in locations such as Bath and Edinburgh. Ultimately, when you should visit depends on your preferred activities and the weather you're most comfortable with.
