London is one of the most important cities in the world. The importance of London is not restricted to only its political importance. It is a very important city from economic point of view at the world level. It is considered to be one of the very important cities from tourism point of view as well.

Lots of people enjoy this place and a clear majority of these people is interested in viewing London due to the world famous landmarks the place has. The perfect shopping opportunities and nice weather and country side are also some attractions of London as a tourist destination.

London has a clear impact of the close proximity of the huge Atlantic Ocean. The presence of a huge water body generally has very clear impacts on the weather of a place. If a place has a huge water body located very close to it, the place will be having a moderate kind of climate. It some times gets really cold in winters and the temperatures fall below freezing point in the months of December and January.

But in general, the temperature averages remain above the freezing point. The lowest temperatures are recorded in the months of December and January. In these months the temperatures are as low as 8 degrees centigrade. The summer months of July and August are the warmest. The range of temperature here is not very prominent. This is another effect of the close proximity of the Atlantic Ocean.

London receives a lot of rainfall every year and the amount of rainfall is easily scattered over all of the year. No month in particular is a dry month. The summer and winter both seasons get lots of rainfall. There are more rainy days experienced in London as compared to the rainless clear days.

Although summers are not dry in particular in London but the months of winters receive almost twice as much rainfall is there is in the summer months. The winters are thus cold and rainy. London is located very close to Greenwich, the zero meridian, thus the GMT is followed in London as well. London is a must visit place, you must not miss it as a tourist.
