Why does London get so much rain???

Heavy rain in London is very rare. Most times I go to London it does not rain.

I suspect you are using Hollywood as a guide to London's weather.
In fact, London gets less rain than Rome or New York. However, like the rest of UK, the weather is unpredictable. You can never plan an outside event and be certain it will stay dry, even in mid summer.
There are also a lot of cloudy days. Many visitors are surprised to see white skies.
Come and have a look for yourself. You will have a great time!

Because that’s the climate))

The prevailing warm moist westerly winds mean that the west of the UK is more likely to receive rainfall from Atlantic weather systems, in the form of frontal rainfall. These weather systems usually move from west to east across the UK and as they do so the amount of rainfall they deposit reduces.

It has been an unusually wet period in London and Southern England from late September until now. The London area has seen a sharp decline in rainfall over the past 30 years and there have been many droughts

It doesn't get much compared with some other parts of Europe. Though it does tend to be damp because we're on an island.

It doesn't get a lot of rain, just 22.976 inches or 583.6mm annually. You've just caught a bad combination of storms. Climate warming is said to be the cause of more frequent events like that.
