Clothing for July trip

Hi I just wondered what sort of clothing would be best for a trip in July encompassing London, Wales, Windsor and Ireland? It is summer but what is the weather likely to be? I expect if won't be as hot as we are used to in summer but is it likely to be too hot for long pants and jeans during the day or too cool for skirts and shorts? Thanks for your help.

I would take all of the above items as it could be anything from 5-30C.

London weather isn't that different from Melbourne's. Maybe a bit drier. Windsor, the same.

The further west and north you go in the British Isles, the wetter and colder it gets.

So Wales will have more rain than the east coast, and Ireland, more again.

You are going to have to bring a variety of clothes and watch the weather forecast the day before. That's what everyone does in the UK if they are worried about being too hot or cold, or getting wet...

Or you wear clothes that cater for 3 seasons....

There was snow at the top of Snowdon(Wales) yesterday. But it was normal weather at the bottom. That is unusual but not unheard of.

Brilliant. I was just going to post about the June snow in Wales as well.

I'm a guy and have travelled in Britain for over 20 years from California. I also have gone in every month, often in Winter. On each trip I have taken this type of clothes. Cotton pants, polo shirts, a sweater for cooler days and my jacked with a built in hood . Oh, good pair oif walking shoes.I place my total stuff in my gym bag and when fully packed it is 13 pounds.

Its cold and wet here today. I would come prepared for anything. Layers are the answer.

cargo trousers (lots of pockets), a selection of short sleeved t shirts, some long sleeved shirts and a couple of sweaters. good walking shoes and a waterproof coat. I take one dress, a sleeveless button through, it can go over t shirts or under sweaters or on its own if it really gets hot (unlikely)
