Setting Description:
During the summer the weather in the UK is very difficult to predict and varies from region to region. It can get very warm but there are also occasional showers. It is highly recommended that you prepare for all types of weather; bring shorts, pants, and a sweater or light jacket; chances are you will need them all. Average temperatures for summer are low 50s -- high 60s.

Bring clothes that you can layer for ease of comfort. To prepare for rain showers, also bring a raincoat, poncho, or umbrella.
