Best time to visit

England's weather varies dramatically throughout the year. The winters can be bitterly cold and wet (-4 to about 9 degrees on average). June and July are the best months to travel because it tends to be warmer and drier (usually between 12 and 21 degrees), although English weather is never very predictable. The south coast usually sees the best weather, being milder throughout the year, whilst the North experiences cooler conditions. Despite this, the difference in temperature from the north to the south is never more than a few degrees.

Accommodation / Hotel

There are a great many places to stay across England, which will suit virtually any budget. Although accommodation is likely to prove the most expensive part of your trip, this doesn't necessarily have to be the case, as cheap options are available. Be aware that as you get further away from the cities, the prices don't always drop too dramatically. Book your hotel in England here

Special conditions

England is a comparatively safe country, but as with most countries these days, travellers should keep their wits about them. Street crime is always a risk in larger towns and cities, so obviously, don't flaunt your valuables. However, if you do find yourself in trouble, dial the emergency services on 999. Beggars can also pose a problem in urban areas and it is advised that donations be given not to the beggars themselves, but to the major charities such as Shelterline, and the Big Issue (a magazine which can be bought from street vendors at the price of £1).
