If temperatures rise above 16 degrees (you expect to see people wearing t-shirts and shorts) and above 23, it's a heat wave and people will tell you a million times a day that it's too hot.

In fact, I've lived and worked in London, so I have a lot of insider information and experience. In this blog, I share a lifetime of travel knowledge and experiences to help you travel around the world country (and travel by train) at the same time.
