These are officially the wettest towns and cities in the UK

If you’re heading to uni in Cardiff, I’d invest in an umbrella

It’s no secret that it rains a lot in in the North of England. But while cities like Manchester have a reputation for being really wet, there are rainier towns and cities around the UK.

Cardiff is actually the wettest city in the UK, receiving 96mm of rainfall every month, according to MetOffice data analysed by  ShowersToYou.

If you’re heading there for uni, I’d seriously consider investing in an umbrella, as on average, the city has 12.4 wet days every month.

Glasgow has the second largest amount of rainfall for a town or city, but has the highest number of wet days with 14.2 on average every month.

Here’s a full breakdown of the wettest towns and cities in the UK.
