This post is a summary of the London weather in April, including average temperatures and rainfall, with tips on what to pack and things to do.
AVERAGE APRIL TEMPERATURES IN LONDON
Daylight hours continue to increase rapidly this month gaining almost 2 extra hours between the 1st and the 30th.
Daytime high temperatures tend to be about 12 C (in mid-50s F) early in April but will warm to about 5-16 C (60 F) by the end of the month with a few afternoons seeing temperatures at or above 21 c (70 F).
Late night and early mornings tend to remain cool early in April, averaging near 4-5C (40F) with a few colder mornings dipping to near 32F (0C).
Towards the end of April, mornings will mostly be 7-8C (in the mid-40s F).
About 13-14 days will have either sunny or at least partly sunny skies while 18-19 days will record some rainfall with one of these days reporting snow.
Accumulating snow is rare.
April winds are mostly light to moderate but occasionally can be fresh at 20-24 MPH (31-38 KPH).
April is changeable so it is best to bring rain gear and a warm coat or jacket for those cooler mornings and evenings.
Also bring some lighter springtime attire for those warmer afternoons, especially if you're visiting later in the month.
A pair or two of good walking shoes are also a must so you can enjoy all of our walking tours!
