What to Wear in London in Spring (+ Packing List!)

I live in Wakefield, in the north of England, and visit London for work about once a month. As such, I visit London in the spring a lot. In fact, it’s my favourite time to visit.

However, visiting London in the spring can be hard as the weather can change a lot, both daily and during the day. You can wake up one morning with beautiful sunshine, but it could be pouring rain by lunch.

That said, if I was planning a trip to London in the springtime, here’s what I’d pack.


Here are the essential clothing items you’ll need for a trip to London:

  • Underwear
  • Socks
  • Trousers & Leggings
  • T-Shirts
  • Jacket
  • Trainers
  • Pyjamas

You could pack a dress or two, especially if you’re going somewhere nice on an evening. However, you’ll need to layer this with a jacket and/or a coat.
