On holiday in the United Kingdom.

If there is one thing that is impossible, it is succinctly describing the best time to travel to the United Kingdom. This is because in addition to England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland also has many overseas territories scattered around the globe. There is a temperate maritime climate in the European part of the UK, but also tropical climates in places like Anguilla, Montserrat and the Cayman Islands. South Georgia and the Southern Sandwich Islands have the much cooler tundra climate. Nevertheless, we will try to give a best travel time indication per region.

The climate in the United Kingdom

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a country that consists of four areas that were previously separate countries, namely England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Many (sports) leagues, tournaments and competitions still regard these four areas as separate countries. Politically and culturally, too, they are clearly distinct areas, each with its own identity. In international relations, however, the United Kingdom is seen as one state. Within the European Union and various international organisations, only the sovereign state of the United Kingdom exists as a trading and interlocutor partner. For most people, the four territories are seen as four countries within one country, mainly because they each have their own political identity. In addition to the four territories in Western Europe, the UK has a number of overseas territories which are under the sovereignty of the UK but are not directly part of the Kingdom. These former colonies or crown colonies often have their own administrations and currencies, such as the Cayman dollar (KYD) and the Gibraltar pound (GIP). For example, in July in the Falkland Islands maximum temperatures are around five degrees Celsius while in Caribbean destinations such as the Cayman Islands and the Virgin Islands it is tropical with temperatures around thirty degrees.
