When to Go to England

The English tourist season peaks from mid-April to mid-October, and during July and August accommodations in popular resorts and areas are in high demand. Many historic houses close from October to Easter. The winter cultural season in London is lively, however, and hotel rates are lower then, too. Spring and fall can be good alternatives to summer, as prices are still below high-season rates, and crowds are thinner. Generally, the climate in England and Wales is mild. Summer temperatures can reach the mid-80s, but it's more likely to be cooler and cloudier than you expect. In winter there can be heavy frost, thin snow, thick fog, and rain, rain, rain. Here are average daily maximum and minimum temperatures for two cities.
