Time

Greenwich, in London, is where you will find the Prime Meridian - the line that divides the Earth into East and West and from which the world's time is set. Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is the term used for the current time on this line, and clocks and watches all around the world are set in relation to this.

GMT precisely (GMT+1 in summer)

Weather

In the summer, it can be as hot as 32°C (90°F) but mostly the temperature only reaches 26°C (79°F). The average high in London from June through August is around 21°C (70°F) and the average low is around 12°C (54°F). However, England has a reputation of frequent weather changes during a day, so do not forget your umbrella!
