It can stay light until at least 10 pm during the height of summer, so you’ll be able to enjoy long walks in the balmy evening air through the verdant parks and neighborhoods of London.

Autumn, or Fall as it is known as in America, is one of the most beautiful seasons in London. Not yet cold enough for a winter coat, the air is crisp and yet it is still warm enough to sit outdoors and enjoy a last picnic before the cold of winter sets in. the great thing abo9ut most homes in London is that they are centrally heated. All you have to do is switch on your central heating at the beginning of winter and you’ll have a cozy and warm London apartment waiting for you at the end of the day. Living in London offers so much in terms of changing weather and it will give you the chance to see the seasons change and the beauty of city living.
