Climate England is famous for its rain and the lush green of its countryside. Coldest months are December to February, when the temperature is usually between 3 and 6°C. In July and August, the temperature averages between 16 and 21°C. Rain falls throughout the year, and the weather in England can sometimes change very quickly. Especially in fall and winter strong atlantic low-pressure systems can bring gales and uncomfortable weather with heavy rain, showers or even thunderstorms.

Required clothing: Lightweights with rainwear for summer, waterproof Medium to Heavyweights for your England travel in winter. Be prepared for sometimes very crazy hard weather conditions in the mountainous regions of Scotland.

Cuisine recognised as a little curious and bland. Traditional English dishes are a small part of English cuisine is, a lot of it you can find dan and flavors borrowed from other countries. For breakfast you eat “Full English Breakfast” or toast, eggs, baked beans, sausages, sausage, becon, hash brown and mushrooms. You have to try it! For dinner try the brownie Beef (Roast beef) with Yorkshire pudding with potatos and vegetables. It is served with gravy. Also, try casserole with beef and potatoes (Cottage pie) or the fish and chips. The English like to flavors of the Orient. if you had asked Londoner on the street about favorite food would probably have responded, “Tikka masala of course”. Among the desserts recommend Trifle (Gordon Ramsey’s favorite dessert). These are the fruit in jelly layered with custard and sponge cake with whipped cream. In the afternoon find time for tea (always with milk and sugar) and buns with raisins (scones), in the evening relax when you drink cold cider.
