Seriously?
This will be a subjective thread, but these climates I believe are ether as bad or worse:
Oslo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Reykjavík - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Vancouver - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hobart - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wellington - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Glasgow - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
And there's so much more, but can't be bothered to find them as it's 4 in the morning and seriously need sleepys! HAha

Not imo. But depends on what kind of weather you like. I'm not a fan of extreme weather in either direction. London is mild and kind of stable. Could be a bit sunnier, but the lack of extreme cold in winter makes up for that. Moscow would be worse for me.

No, Moscow's climate is far worse...though I don't like London's climate either.

I still prefer these three over London. They have tolerable sunshine hours.

The others are much worse, yes.

At least London gets a few sunny and reasonably warm days every summer. Northern UK (Glascow, Dublin) and any subarctic climate is much worse.

I'd think the coldies would like London over a tropical climate because at least it gets a little bit of snow in winter.

I think San Francisco would be the climate that would get nothing above of a C from any of the weather forumers. No summer warmth for warm sunshine lovers and no snow or even frost for winter lovers. Unusable beaches where windy and foggy and 55 F in July which felt colder to me than sunny and 30 F with no wind in January at Big bear. No thunderstorms or any type of exciting weather phenomenon either.

IMO The city in the world over a million people with the worst climate in the world would be St. Petersburg. I don't really see anything redeemable about this climate - long cold winters, relatively anemic summers, low sunshine hours, few thunderstorms etc.
Saint Petersburg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ulaanbaatar gets an honourable mention for being the only city in the world over a million people built on permafrost but at least it has a lot of sunshine year round... Wiki stats are wrong btw.


For a city over 100,000 people, Norilsk has to take the cake. Brutal climate...

I'm not a fan of humid, muggy weather. So from my point of view, every major city in Asia is worse. It's not like the winters in London are incredibly harsh.

You really think Vancouver, Hobart and Wellington have the worst climates of any big city in the world? Spend a year in St. Petersburg or Ulaanbaatar and you might change your tune...
