The months of September and October experience mild days and chill nights. Rain may come down till it is almost flooded or just surprise the inhabitants now and then for a few minutes.
Winter starts late in November and extends up to early March. However the peak is experience during the months of December and January. Winter days are cold and grey with an occasional shine from the sun. Days are short and cold while nights are longer and colder. It is probably not the best season to sightsee in London.

London experiences a brief spring from late March to May before the most awaited summer starts. During spring the days are longer and Londoners begin to witness a clearer sky and the best of sun’s rays. During the later days of March and in April the first buds begin to bloom. London starts to look better washing out all the grey from the winter.
With June comes the most awaited summer days in London and lasts till about August. Summer in London is a treat to both Londoners as well as tourists.
