Couple walking through a snow covered park with a large umbrella

I mentioned to someone on Twitter the other day that we ‘never get proper snow in central London’.

And then it snowed. And melted a bit so not ‘proper snow’.

But then today it started snowing again and just kept on snowing all day.

It seemed a shame to stay indoors all day so we went for a walk in what is probably the heaviest snowfall I’ve since here in the past few years.

So it seems that it might not happen very often but occasionally we do get ‘proper’ snow in central London.
