The Best Time to Visit England

There is no real best time to visit England. The weather is so hit and miss, there are things to do rain or shine. England is renown for it’s rainy weather!

To avoid getting stuck in crowds especially in tourist hotspots around London, the best time to visit is during the spring and autumn between April – June & September to start of November.


Generally speaking, England is a fairly safe country to visit. It can be said for most capitals of the world but London is probably when you need to be the most concerned about your safety. In busy areas such as Camden and Leicester Square, you need to be on the look out for pickpocketing in particular.

Knife crime is high in areas such as London, Birmingham & Manchester. That being said, when you are visiting England, if you don’t go looking for trouble, it won’t find you. Most of these types of crimes are between people that know each other and live in the area.

As long as you use your common sense and don’t go picking fights with anyone, you will have a lovely trip and not need to worry too much about safety. Just be sure to keep your card and cash stored away at all times in busy areas like any other city.
