You might want to do a search on this question!

The UK has very changeable weather, and April is predictably unpredictable. We've had snow in April (rare) and temperatures up to mid-20s Celsius.

Most likely: there'll be rain, and wind, and sun, and temperatures generally in the teens Celsius. But bring layers! And a good waterproof coat that you can fold up small and carry. Even if it's sunny in the morning it could rain later (and vice versa).

But the point about London is that the weather doesn't matter as long as you have a suitable coat & shoes.

Very cold with wintry blizzards struggling to get into double figures many days at the start but there was a few days into the 20's as well with many days into low double figure this year but year before it was very warm and into the 20's for quite a few more days.

It may rain. It also may snow, be gloriously hot and sunny and it may be windy. Sometimes all on the same day

Sorry, no way of knowing what the weather will be until May

I always turn to Sylvester for questions like this.


Because we have no clue until after it's happened.

Be prepared for anything. I was there in April one time [ Oxford/ London/ Brighton] and it was freezing! Even started snowing on our way back from Brighton on an evening train. As we were going on to Spain I had not brought a warm enough coat and was really sorry! Bringing layers is the best advice.
