Visit England in August. Summer continues to warm the country as a gentle shift in the countryside’s colour reminds you of the changing seasons. Temperatures remain comfortable, ranging from an average of 12°C/54°F to 21°C/70°F. Check out our English Climate page for more information.
Look out for gentle rain refreshing the parched ground and releasing delicious fragrance into the air. With their nests tucked into the eaves and nooks of buildings, house martins flit overhead with their young while purple carpets of heather cover the countryside.
A calendar of events, including a celebration of all things Yorkshire on the 1st of August, offers plenty to keep you busy. Seasonal Bramley apples, Williams pears and plums bring the iconic English dessert, the crumble, onto every menu. This is a treat for the senses best enjoyed with lashings of thick Devonshire custard in a cosy pub after a busy day adventuring.
