The Warmest Places In Britain

If you are fed up of the cold and wet weather then why not take a look at our latest infographic that reveals the warmest and driest places in the UK.

By using figures available from the Met Office, we ranked cities by warmth using a single combined metric based on maximum average temperature, dry days and total rainfall.

Those living in London should slap on the sun factor as the English capital beat all other UK cities to claim the hot top spot. This is thanks to a maximum temperature of 15.3 degrees celsius, 256 dry days and only 557 mm of rainfall annually.

Other cities that made the top 5 include: Cambridge, Chelmsford, Worcester and Canterbury. 

Come summer these areas will certainly need to consider rainwater harvesting given the looming hospipe ban!

On the other hand, those living in Glasgow should wrap up warm and always think about carrying an umbrella. The Scottish city has won the title of coldest and wettest city in the UK.

Glasgow has a maximum average temperature of just 12.2 degrees Celsius, experiences 195 dry days and receives 1,124 mm of rainfall annually, more than double the amount of rainfall received in London.

Those looking for warmth should also avoid St Davids, Newry, Leeds and Bradford. These cities join Glasgow and make the top 5 coldest cities in the UK.

Take a look at your city below and see how it compares? Are your surprised by the results? Only cities with a complete available data set have been included.
