The best time to visit London is in the spring when the temperatures are mild and the city's parks are green and blooming. However, late spring – along with summer – is also prime tourist season, and hotel and flight prices reflect the surge. You're more likely to find airfare and accommodation deals in the fall and winter though you'll also encounter chilly temperatures.
It's important to note though that December in London is an incredibly popular place to be during the holidays, so expect the streets to be crowded with both English and international tourists. And no matter when you travel, you should pack an umbrella: London is notorious for experiencing misty days and showers year-round. Another thing to keep in mind: it's nearly impossible to escape crowds in London. Along with being one of the biggest cities in Europe, it is one of the most popular destinations to visit in the world, so no matter what time of year you go, you're bound to run into lots of tourists.
Best Months to Visit London
The best months to visit London is during late of Feb. to early of Jun., which is very suit for the travelers' spring vacation with family or students' spring break.
Peak tourist season in London is pretty much all year-round, but late spring (and summer) are especially busy. By making your London Town jaunt in late spring, you'll have the opportunity to witness the royal parks and gardens blossoming, and hit the city's weather sweet spot. However, the earlier you visit in spring, the more likely you'll run into slightly smaller crowds. While fall and winter can be especially rainy, and summer can get a bit muggy, spring in London enjoys a happy medium, with average temperatures hovering between the 50s and 60s.
