No air conditioner in b&b in summer

Hi, is it a concern for visiting London in late July/early August and stay with a b&b without air conditioning? Please advise! Thanks!

Not a problem - you will actually need heating, not cooling.

Check weather sites for details.

Almost nobody who lives in the UK has air conditioning in their homes. Sometimes it's a bit warm for us at night, but not often.

You would struggle to find a B and B WITH air Conditioning!! I've never yet come across one, I think you will find it cool enough!!

The thing with air conditioners is that very few of medium ranged hotels would invest in something that they may only need for three weeks of the year.

I was in London for a month from mid July 2012, I wore a fleece top more days than I wore a t'shirt. Experienced heavy rain and at one outdoor event the commentator was broadcasting heat wave conditions at 20° C. Weather rarely gets as hot as you would have at home.

Thanks all! It seems that there is no hot summer in London and you all remind me to bring jackets with me!

Well, there *might* be a hot summer, although it doesn't look like it will be this year.

It reached 38 deg C in 2003, but average high will be 23-24 deg C.

If it gets a bit warm leave the window open, worked for me yesterday.

Yesterday was one of the hottest days of the year so far and it was 26C in London. We didn't even get the fan out last night as it had cooled down sufficiently by the evening that we didn't need it to sleep comfortably.
