Southampton is a port city on England’s south coast.

Best Time To Visit

English weather can be very unpredictable, therefore planning accordingly can save you a lot of hassle. We recommend that wherever you’re travelling to in the UK, always have an umbrella and sunscreen at hand. June to September is the most favourable time to visit Southampton, as the temperature can reach up to 22°C, and during the day the weather is warm, and pleasant. Rainfall is less scarce during the Summer months, in comparison to other parts of the year. During Spring, Autumn and Winter, you can expect to find heavy rainfall and very cold weather, which usually means that there are less tourists and visitors.
