The weather in Britain is changeable, even during the summer, so bring a warm sweater and a raincoat. In winter, you will need an overcoat, gloves and warm boots. People often talk about the weather in England and it is not unusual to get very different types of weather even in one day!


In Charlotte House heating is supplied by electrical storage heaters. Be sure to switch them off when you are not in the apartment and you will have more heat available when you return.


If you are in homestay and you are cold in the night, please request an extra blanket from your host.


In Newcastle the weather is often quite bright and clear but there is often a breeze and at times it can get windy.
