Although you can enjoy the relatively temperate climate all year round, April to early June and September to October are the best time to visit England. The weather during these months is warm, mostly dry and pleasant. In spring, you can witness crocuses in bloom and puffins flickering on Farne Islands. Autumn offers you exquisite delicacies like chestnuts, oysters, and crabs and beautiful red and yellow hues in national parks. Although sunny summer mornings can abruptly turn into rainy afternoons, late June to August show the driest and the hottest weather and host lots of open-air festivals. The crowds during summertime are madding, but the stunning beaches and the chalk cliffs of East Sussex are still great to visit. December to February can be an enjoyable time to visit English cities when major attractions see shorter queues and Christmasy spirit warms visitors and locals.
