What Is The Best Time To Visit London?

Weather is a capricious creature in London. But good news: famous for being constantly rainy and cloudy, the city can also be delightfully unpredictable, and you can be surprised by hours of sunshine after a heavy storm! So no need to despair.

But in case you want to aim for more pleasant weather, try to go to London during spring. From March through April the city gets covered in a rosé blanket of sakura trees, and the city happens to be one of the best places to see the Japanese cherry blossoms outside of Japan.

Just don’t forget to pack an umbrella, as it may start to “drizzle!”
