By using figures available from the Met Office, we ranked cities by warmth using a single combined metric based on maximum average temperature, dry days and total rainfall. Those living in London should slap on the sun factor as the English capital beat all other UK cities to claim the hot top spot. This is thanks to a maximum temperature of 15.3 degrees celsius, 256 dry days and only 557 mm of rainfall annually. Other cities that made the top 5 include: Cambridge, Chelmsford, Worcester and Canterbury. On the other hand, those living in Glasgow should wrap up warm and always think about carrying an umbrella.

Glasgow has a maximum average temperature of just 12.2 degrees Celsius, experiences 195 dry days and receives 1,124 mm of rainfall annually, more than double the amount of rainfall received in London.
