Summer in London is a very special experience. It is not like a lot of countries where the sun will shine continuously for three or four month of the year. If we are lucky, we have about two weeks of sunshine in July or August. The weather is so unpredictable and our average temperature in the summer months is around 20.8°C (70°F).
This could be because we are an island and our climate is affected by all weather fronts. That is the reason why it is possible to experience four seasons in one day.
However don’t let the weather stop you from discovering what London has to offer. There are so many enjoyable events happening in the city during June, July and August that you are sure to find one which suits you.
