It’s a well-known fact that the British love to talk about the weather in Britain and it’s no wonder. Due to its location right at the edge of Europe, between the North Sea and the North Atlantic, our weather is very changeable.
We are small compared with the other countries in the northern hemisphere, hence Britain is more influenced by the ocean compared with other European countries and the Gulf Stream helps to keep winters milder compared with other landlocked nations with a similar latitude
We never know what the weather will be like from one day to the other. It can be sunny one day and rainy the next. As we have such a variable climate changing from day to day, it is difficult to predict the weather
In general we have warm summers and cool winters. Our summers are cooler than those on the continent, but the winters are milder.
Probably the best months to travel in Britain are May, June, September and October. These months generally have the most pleasant temperatures.
Most people in Britain own an umbrella, as rain is very common. So when you don’t hear British people complaining about too much rain, they’ll be complaining about hose-pipe bans!
So take the opportunity while you can and book a room at The Abbey Hotel in Great Malvern where you can enjoy the weather by taking a long walk on the Malvern Hills, experience one of the many festivals going on in the surrounding area, take the children to the nearby Safari Park or just relax in our Priory Bar Lounge indulging in one of our classic afternoon tea’s.
It’s a great time of year to be outside, but don’t forget that umbrella!
