London in late November - weather still nice for outdoor activities?

Jump to last reply

Two of us are planning a trip to London (our first!) the last week of November. We have just 4-5 days, so are planning to spend all of our time in the London area (the British Museum will probably take two days all by itself!) We probably only have time enough to see some of the "big" sights (Westminster Abbey, Tower of London) and take a side trip to Stonehenge. I'd also really love to drive along the coast from Dover to Southampton, but I don't want to cram too much into what will hopefully be a fun getaway.

SO -- (1) what is the weather NORMALLY like in late November/early December? Will it be too cold for outdoor sightseeing, or will it be fine with a jacket? (2) Is it easy to get around without a car? We don't mind a lot of walking. (3) Is it easy to take the subway/tube from the airport to hotels in downtown London? We pack light! After doing some searching here, I'll be checking out the County Hall Marriott, The Trafalgar London Hilton (Trafalgar Square) and the Waldorf Hilton (West End), hoping that these will be central to most things we want to see. (4) What's the best way to get out to Stonehenge? If we rent a car for one day, I'm thinking we might be able to drive out to Stonehenge, then maybe the southern coastline.

I know I've packed a lot in the last paragraph, so I tried to break it down into my main four questions (although I'm sure I'll have more!) Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
