Does it really ran everyday? Is it depressing if you are used to a sunny climate?
Damn, I hope some Londoners answer this. I've visited several times but only for few weeks at a time.
It's not as bad as Seattle and Portland.
It rains there a lot. Not all the time, but a lot.
If you like a sunny climate, your wont like London.
I like the rain, it's grey days that are the worst in London.
It's not hard to adjust. It rains often but certainly not everyday. It has the climate you would expect, autumn and winter are grey, cold and wet, but as you move through spring into summer it gets dryer, warmer and sunnier. Summers in England are beautiful in my opinion.
One year, I was in London in September. It was hot and sunny. Loved it.
It is no worse than New York State.
It's been beautiful and sunny all weekend. A little chilly, but it's going to be 58°F today.
It's not the rain that's the problem, OP, it's the drizzle. London doesn't actually have a very high rainfall but like R5 said it's often grey, it looks like it might rain, the sky will feel like it's round your knees, but only a few misty pathetic sprinkles will appear. Think of a Turner painting and you'll get the idea.
You can always weekend in Brighton if you're missing the sun. Or better yet, the south of France.
It doesn't really rain that much.
I can't even remember the last time it rained. Maybe two weeks ago.
The summers are awful since global warming. They start early and are very muggy.
I like the climate. As much as Londoners like to complain about the weather is, with rare exception, mildly variable within a temperate range. There's enough variation to be interesting but the extremes are not freakish. It rains often, but pouring down rains tend to be very brief and infrequent - it's rare to be inconvenienced by heavy rain for more than a few minutes.
Sun and sand and surf sorts may hate the "off-seasons" (or want to emigrate to filthy Australia), but there's no accounting for taste. The summers are beautiful and can have some hot weeks but it's far from a Mississippi or a Seville hot. The winters can be cold, but not unrelentingly brutal cold. And rainy days are lovely to my eye.
Oh FFS, historically they said 140 days with some rain in a London year compare thus to 167 days in New York. Get over yr fuckin' Dick Van Dyke Mary Poppins fantasy of what London is..
