UK weather: South London’s snow days from recent years

Earlier this week we anticipated the possibility of picturesque snow to settle across South London.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get the dreamlike scenery that some of us were hoping for, despite a frosty week.

As south London missed out on the snow, we thought we would offer you the next best thing – a gallery from recent years.

From Bexley to Morden, and everywhere in between, we have presented some of the best snow moments over the years…
