Following up to dice44

    >what's the least rainy season in london?

bit late!

August tends to be sweaty
November tends to be dark and gloomy
Its rarely foggy :-)

Try April/May, not to cold/hot/ not too wet.

Numbers here:-

"http://www.fellwalk.co.uk/londonhols.htm#weather"

London is on the drier side of England, so rain isnt that much of a
problem if you have a coat. Measurable rain falls on about 1 day in 3
at most.

Its sunny today, it was sunny yesterday

But the rain in London rarely stops you from doing anything.

If it did, you'd never do anything.

But really, it's not as bad as, say, Seattle.

As a Londoner in Jakarta....
I do find that London drizzle going on for days non-stop (as it did a couple
of times in Jan/Feb on my last trip there) does stop me doing things... I
love walking around London - a bit of rain is OK, but after a few hours I
give up.

(and its true, a Jakarta storm puts down as much H2O in 15 min. as a whole
day or more of London drizzle, and usually it is soon gone - being warmer
doesnt hurt either!)

Um, even Seattle isn't as bad as, say, Seattle (as perceived).
Having experienced rainy times and pleasant days in both cities, I'd say
it's a toss-up; the climates of London and Seattle are more alike than
they are different, but Seattle legendarily-rainy reputation is a bit
overdone, especially this past fall and winter, thanks to El Nino
once again.
