Summer time in the UK can vary on a number of factors from weather, where you are situated in the UK, and even down to the people you are surrounded by. The weather can range from 15 degrees to 30 degrees and it is rare that anybody visits the UK for its weather alone. The regions vary significantly, from the busy streets of London to the quiet back roads of the Lake District, and within those places the people can vary significantly too. The UK is unlike any other part of Europe and has its own unique characteristics that allow the country to stand out significantly from its neighbours.
UK’s Breathtaking Sights
London is one of the most popular destinations for tourists while visiting the UK. There is so much to see and do; from Big Ben, the giant clock towering over London city, to Camden Market where you can take in the unusual and quirky atmosphere unique to only Camden town. Of course, there is a whole lot more to do with your time in London, with museums and art galleries on nearly every corner and some of the nicest restaurants in Europe. Along the coast, there are cities and towns which offer relaxing breaks and a variety of activities such as amusements and night life in Blackpool or the relaxing lifestyle and beaches of Newquay. Of course for the keen adventurers there are always the alternatives, like white water rafting in Wales, climbing in Scotland or hillwalking in the Lake District. When summer time comes about in the UK the possibilities are endless!
An Authentic Experience
To go home with a true experience of the day-to-day life in the UK, it is important to immerse yourself in the culture and expose yourself to experiences which are foreign to you. Break away from the tourist groups and get to know some of the local people. They will take you off the beaten track and show you some real gems within the country. There are other ways of seeing the country and getting a first-hand experience of the English lifestyle. For the younger generation Thames Valley is the perfect opportunity for teenagers to immerse themselves in the English language and culture. Renting a car for adults is a great way to get around and experience the UK countryside and, of course, for backpackers, hitching is still a common option. The UK is full of unlocked secrets and getting out during the warm summer months to experience the lifestyle and culture is a perfect way to spend any summer, especially in the UK. There is no better time to visit a country than when the flowers have blossomed, people are out and about and the country is buzzing with life. If you are planning a trip to the UK, do make sure it is during the summer time!
