    When is the best time of year to visit England?

    A little rain, a little sunshine, and not too crowded?

    Hi, Rose, I always think the best weather is about the end of May and the begining of June, also the kids are still at school over here, so you won't get trampled when you go and see the sights! of course if you come in July you can come to our Hubcamp if I remember the date right! lol

    May-July  is the best time (spring) and London city will looks so beautiful with flowers all over. I was there during that time and really enjoyed.

    British weather is notoriously unpredictable, but May to July are probably the most pleasant months. The schools break up in late July, so the museums etc are busier then, but they also lay on extra events which are great if you have children with you.

    Over recent years it has been April/May for great weather if my memory serves me well. It is off peak time (except for the Easter period) so everywhere should be slightly quieter.

    The very best month of the year in England is June. It is sometimes a bit drizzly, if it is a bad year, but the days are long and the nights short. It is warmer, usually, unless you really notice the cold when you might prefer July.
    In June all our hedgerows are shining with wild roses and spring flowers. The birds are singing like mad and the fields look pretty with new leaves on trees and grass growing like mad.
    In June all the hoteliers are looking forward to a new season and are happy and welcoming. The shops are all looking forward to having some new faces coming and going, and the people who work in pubs aren't feeling fed up, even the chefs are putting some effort into the new year.
    Forget the not too crowded. England is more or less full up, especially the South East - it is a wonder that the country doesnt tip sideways.
    The South West is usually busy with tourists - all the year round - but this does mean that there is plenty to visit.
    I am prejudiced, being a Devonian, in England. To really enjoy England you should try doing a planned tour  - something that you find fascinating about England.
    There are the National Trust properties, if you like history and big fancy houses.
    There are things like horse shows or horse racing - you can tell what sort of things I like.
    I want to go to all the English Cathedrals one year - to see some lovely old English cities and some magnificent architecture.
    I really hope you enjoy your tour

    If you want a little rain, a little sunshine and not too crowded then April/May would be a good time to visit!

    London is always busy but you'd get less young kids about if you avoid the big holidays in July and August!

    If you do visit and you have a reasonably long stay, make sure you get out of the big cities and have a look around the countryside. As a resident Brit, I am prone to complaining about pretty much everything in the UK, but when the weather is good the English countryside is enough to shut me up!! if only temporarily wink!!

    If you want to leave it until a bit later, September and even October, have been unusually pleasant recently and you still avoid the children (if that's a concern for you).

    It can also be cheaper that time of year so you might pick up cheap flights and cheap accommodation.
