The Best Times of the Year to Visit London

The Best Times of the Year to Visit London
Life in London is invigorating, which is why travelers find that a single visit isn't sufficient to experience everything the old city offers. Known for its misty and rainy days,-London is a popular tourist destination worldwide.

While you can visit it any time because of its mild climate and rare extreme weather, your visit will differ depending on your visitation period. The best time to visit the city is spring during mild temperatures and a time when the parks are blooming and green.

Late spring, however; is a prime season for tourists, so expect hiked flight and hotel prices. If you're looking to score deals, plan your visit during fall and winter.


Peak season is practically all-year round, but summer and late spring are particularly busy. You'll enjoy mild weather and extended daylight hours if you visit during this period. Some of the events to expect during this period include:

Tina Turner Musical

The great musical will take place from March 21-October 20th at Aldwych Theatre. The musical revolves around Tina Turner's life and eclectic career and you can book the tickets online, with prices ranging from £10-£85.

Museums at Night

The UK-wide festival, which is dedicated to highlighting Britain's heritage and culture, will take place from 16th-19th May. The event, which takes place twice annually, invites all UK galleries, museums, heritage sites and libraries to display their treasures.


You'll find London crowded in mid-September because of the mild 60-70 degree temperatures. However, if you're looking to familiarize with the culture, this is the ideal time to visit. The key event include:

Belfast International Arts Festival

The festival is a celebration of contemporary arts with a global theme. From 16th October-3rd November, it will bring the most innovative artists to Belfast. It covers theatre, classical, dance, digital arts, and educational events.

It's always a good time to visit London, but as you can see, some times are better than others.
