Weather: It's rainy quite often. Depending on where you're from, it can also feel quite cold. Dress warm and bring waterproof clothing!

Weather: Could It Rain More? It rains all the time: drizzle, heavy downpour, or slight misting. When it's not raining it's cloudy. It can be depressing if you aren't used to it.

Weather: It's London – It rains a lot in the fall - and by a lot I mean almost every day. Luckily the winters are short and the spring is beautiful.

Weather: It's true you can't really avoid the grim weather London has to offer. General overcast and cold winds are the norm here. I was surprised though that rain wasn't as common as I thought it'd be -- I haven't even bought an umbrella. But on the chance days that the sun comes out, London can be really pleasant.

Weather: Rainy, Gray – London is a fairly gray city, but this doesnt really affect me that much. You get used to the weather and appreciate the occasional sunny days

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Unfortunately, the stereotype of London as a rainy city turns out to be completely accurate. It does, in fact, rain at least once a day, and the days it doesn't rain are usually cloudy throughout. If you come from a place with a good climate, then the weather in London will surely be a shock, and you are likely to be horribly depressed about it. If weather is not that important to you then, well, it doesn't matter. The sunny days are, therefore, treasured like a precious gift by most of the students.

There are redeeming qualities to the weather in London. In the winter, the temperature rarely reaches below zero, so, therefore, it does not snow all that often. Freezing rain, on the other hand, is common. Spring also comes early in England, so the winter is hardly felt. The problem is that when the weather turns nice in the springtime, students are in the middle of their exam period and have very little time to actually enjoy it. There is a reason why the British always vacation in the sunniest places in the world.
