Exploring the UK.
Summer is perhaps the best time to visit the United Kingdom. This season falls between June and August in the U.K. The rain that notoriously plagues the region throughout the winter and spring eases up, and the countryside is alive with flowers and lots of sunshine. Even walking around major cities like London and Manchester is more enjoyable with the sun on your face. Take a river cruise down the Thames, or go to the beach in Brighton.
On the other hand, winter in Britain brings opportunities for skiing in Scotland winter picnics in the Wales countryside. Down in the southern part of the region, you can still enjoy sites like the British Museum or Tower of London when the temperatures dip a bit. Some of the cheapest airfares on U.K. flights are easy to find between December and March, but don’t worry; if you head to the U.K. in fall or spring there will still be plenty to do. If there is a bit of chill in the air, just head to Bath, England, and warm up in the famed Roman Baths.
