    We've taken 3 sets of grandchildren, all in mid June and it has been great. We were fortunate to have great weather, except for the afternoon cloudbursts. We didn't have any overwhelming heat and the crowds were manageable. The next set we will be forced to go later in the month and I fear we will be butting up against the 4th of July crowds.

    We always tend to go in May and December but have occasionally strayed to end of may, beginning of June.

    I have to say, we notice a huge difference doing that. Of course some years are different to others weather wise, but we find May is generally well controlled heat, not over the top, few rain showers/thunderstorms. Swap to June and the afternoon downpours become more predictably consistent and seem to last longer, the heat is more intense to the point we don't like the parks in the afternoon because they're just too hot.

    I wouldn't say we've been put off June, but I think we prefer May

    The only time I went in June it rained solidly for 5 days- that was the last week of June

    What about Easter? I'm looking into that myself for 2015, about to post a thread

    Easter is an option. It's not for us as I work in a school so June is out. I'm asking on behalf of a couple in their seventies so wondered if they'd struggle with the heat. Is there much difference in crowd level between Easter, May and June?

    Im not sure, What about first 2 weeks of December? Low crowds and usually sun everyday and roundabout 21/22 degrees

    I'd go then every time if I could. Flights are cheaper too - around 500

    I rate first two weeks of December above all the other options I really do

    So you think given their age this would be a better choice for them? They're in good health but the lower the crowds, heat etc the better. Another thing - apart from the food and wine festival, are there any other festivals worth noting?
