Most people think of London when they hear UK or United Kingdom. Well before we tell you why it’s a great idea to visit this amazing place in July let us clarify UK or United Kingdom is made up of Great Britain, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. So you can easily spend a few days in UK every July and still have something new to do each time you visit!
The weather in UK can be pretty dramatic and summer is the best time to be able to travel and explore the lovely outdoors of the country. It is also peak season which means a lot of tourists and planning in advance to get good accommodation and prices but it also means the smaller sleepier towns and villages come to life with locals and tourists both enjoying the fair weather and joyous summer vibe.
Many small and quaint places in the United Kingdom survive on tourism and going at peak of summer means you will get to enjoy the place at its most vibrant. While we recommend avoiding big cities like London at peak summer times because of the mad lines at monuments, places like Cotswold water park and Snowdonia are best enjoyed in Summer.
July also sees many festivals, events and concerts throughout UK. It is a great time to explore the National Parks and enjoy activities like hiking, biking, climbing etc. All in all there is always a castle or a lord’s mansion, a small charming village and blooming country side to explore, almost straight out of a fairytale. But it being UK always go prepared for rain because what is a good fairytale without some drama, which in the United Kingdom is often provided by the weather!
July in United Kingdom is summer. While the smaller islands and some place may have micro climates expect long days. Sunshine in UK is never guaranteed and it rains almost every day but summer month of July sees limited showers and a promise of perfect holiday weather. A light jacket and an umbrella is however mandatory when one travels to UK.
