KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Anyone who spends any extended period of time in England would begin to understand the local fixation on the weather, although it is generally considered to have a mild climate. The least welcoming months for visitors are November to February. It's very cold and the days are much shorter. March and October are better in comparison because they have more daylight, but it can still be pretty nippy outside. April to September are the best months to visit England. Most sights are open and more people are around milling about. July and August are the busiest months for the country and should be avoided if at all possible. Popular cities like Oxford and York, along with national parks and coastlines are unbelievably crowded over the course of these months.
From historic castles and homes, museums and galleries to nature reserves and parks, England hosts a unique array of incredible visitor attractions.
