What to Expect in Vancouver
Vancouver is eight hours behind London, and while the time difference may take some adjusting to, the weather won't. London and Vancouver share a similar climate, averaging a mild 19 degrees Celsius in summer and 4 degrees Celsius at its coldest in winter. While it's no surprise that London is known as an expensive city, few realise that Vancouver ranks as one of the most expensive cities in North America and, in some cases, is more expensive than London. Hotels can be pricey depending on location and average around CA$180, more expensive than even Toronto. It is a beautiful city to visit, though, and well worth the visit.
