Averages for London in October
October in London is much cooler and wetter than previous months. Daytime temperatures now only reach up to 14°C (57°F) and can fall to 8°C (46°F) in the evenings.
There are now five hours of sunshine each day and you can expect rain on an average of 14 days. So although on a clear day you would be fine to be out and about in a light jacket, it is a good idea to bring a waterproof mac and umbrella with you just in case.
Many tourist attractions in London are open all year round.
Although Buckingham Palace tends to close in early October, the Tower of London remains open and you can head here to get a closer look at the crown jewels or learn the macabre history of imprisonments and execution!
Accommodation can be quite pricey in London, but if you choose to stay outside the city centre you can get a good deal.
The City View Hotel is located in Bethnal Green, which is East of the city centre. Here you can stay in a double room with breakfast included for £324 for seven nights. The hotel is situated right opposite Bethnal Green tube station, so there are excellent transport links for the rest of the city.
And the Belgrave House Hotel in Pimlico offers a double room for seven nights from £455. This is an excellent central location, just 5 minutes from Victoria Station, which has an express train to Gatwick airport.
