That is from Greenwich...

From the Met Office, Kew Gardens:

Weather and climate change - Met Office

23.5C in July 23.2C in August

There are weather stations in central London (St James' Park & London Weather Centre) that are no doubt warmer but data isn't available for those...

No contest. Vancouver is sunnier, milder in the summer, lower summer record highs, and has a greater chance of snow in winter than London, although both locations have considerably milder winters than my location.

Yes I live near Heathrow, and the average max temps are 23.5C for July and 23.2C for August, which for July correctly rounds up to 24C as someone earlier said. Heathrow is about 15 miles from central London and is actually quite rural, so this wouldn't be a surprise.

I'm pretty sure that in central London the average highs will be anywhere from 0.5-1C higher, but that doesn't really matter.

Regarding sunshine, this is where Vancouver would win, but saying this, 220 hours of sunshine in July has never felt low to me, it's only about 40 less than New York and the majority of days here have a good deal of sunshine, it is generally in early morning when the weather can be annoyingly cloudy, but it soon burns off.

Overall though, I would have to go for London for the warmth, and better chance of higher temperatures. Vancouver's record high is only 34.4C, which has been reached in 3 years here since 2003. Looking at the averages for Vancouver compared to the record highs, it seems to me that Vancouver temperatures are more stable, London for example in October could have a daytime max anywhere from about 5C to almost 30C
