Have you noticed the rain recently? This April has proved to be the wettest in almost a century - with a whopping 97mm of rain fall across the UK, and 166 per cent more than the normal April showers.
This gloomy weather could even turn holidaymakers against a UK staycation break this year, according to Virgin Holidays.
Amanda Wills, Managing Director of Virgin Holidays, said: “After the wettest April in a century, and numerous predictions for an overcrowded, washout summer, it’s hard to blame them for turning their back on the staycation."
However, Sarah Long from Visit Britain insists that it will take a lot more than a some rain to put off the Brits - who are already well aware what the weather is like in the UK, before they begin planning their holiday.
She told IdealShortBreaks: "People who want their two weeks in the sun are always going to go away and have their two weeks in the sun. But that isn't always the most important thing for every holidaymaker.
"Without the rain, we wouldn't have the spectacular British countryside that so many people choose a staycation for. There are lots of indoor activities to enjoy in England too, like our world-famous museums and galleries."
"2012 is going to be a particularly special year for Brits on holiday in the UK - there are so many events coming up for the Queen's Jubilee and London Olympics. Holidays in England are for people who want a bit more from their break."
Some of the celebrations taking place across the UK this June, to mark the Diamond Jubilee, include a new Crown Jewels exhibit, a quirky aquatic display, a Royal souvenirs exhibition and a giant vintage tea party.
