People have opted to booking hotel rooms with air conditioning as temperatures are forecast to reach 40°C in parts of England on Monday and Tuesday.
Many people have taken to Twitter to share their tips and tricks for surviving the heatwave. Besides the predictable suggestion to stay in the shade, drink water, and keep the blinds closed, some have also recommended booking hotel rooms with air con or working in a hotel lobby rather than from home.
One person said they have found a hotel with air con to get them through the heatwave as regular UK homes are not prepared to withstand the temperatures.
However, the account also warned: “Many can’t afford that. People and pets will die.”
We are looking at setting records here in the UK this week. Likely 40°C (104°F).
Almost no one has air conditioning and our infrastructure is not designed for this heat.
I’ve found an hotel with air con to get me through this. Many can’t afford that. People and pets will die.

Assad Tannous (@AsennaWealth) said he has already had to move to a hotel with air con in London when it reached highs of 32°C.
“Problem in the UK is hardly anyone has air con,” he shared on Twitter.
Ann Chapman (@LeFuzzyOtter) asked for recommendation on hotels with an outdoor pool and air con to stay in until Tuesday as she is ‘tempted to hunker down somewhere’ while the heat is at its strongest.
Does anyone know of any decent hotels in the UK that have an outdoor pool or at least nice leisure facilities /close to a beach/water? Tempted to hunker down somewhere Sunday – Tuesday
