When is summers in UK & when should i visit it?

I am keen to travel UK, specially London. Just want to know when are summers in UK? What is the best time to travel to Europe from India.

This year, we all would like to know "when is summer" because ther has been precious little sign of it so far!

21 June is "mid-summers day" so June to September is "supposed" to be summer......

Summer is June, July and August.

We never know what to expect in the way of weather but it is temperate and not extreme.

May and June can be very pleasant months, with long daylight hours, September, although officially Autumn is my favourite month of all. End of July and all of August are school hoildays in the UK so places are more crowded and prices ten to go up. Personally I would go for June or September.

The same as in Dallas or anywhere else in the Northern Hemisphere. Only in the Southern Hemisphere are the seasons reversed.

(I accept this is a North-centric view :-) )

We don't have 'summers'. Only mild, wet, windy and cloudy days all year round. Sometimes we are blessed with a sunny day though

I do hope ROneyD has realised no-one is making fun of his question & he appreciates how we English have been lacking what might reasonably be described as summer. My first instinct was to say "hopefully this decade!'

Would agree that June & September are the nicest months.

These days the UK doesn't have seasons let alone a climate. What we have is weather that - apparently - is determined by someone drawing balls out of a hat

Bear in mind that in Scotland we have all four seasons in any one day !!!
