Grey and grim days aren’t exactly rare in London, so when the heavens open there’s always plenty to do. The capital is packed with hundreds of indoor activities: it’s home to some of the world’s very best museums, art galleries and shops, as well as plenty of great cafés, pubs and bars to drown your sorrows in. So whether it’s raining, drizzling, pouring, or full-on chucking it down, we’ve got bad weather conditions covered – but maybe bring your brolly, just in case.
