"But there are actually places in the UK that get very humid — just not the hot and sweaty kind that you’d usually associate with that term.

"Surprisingly, Worthing is the most humid town in the UK, albeit categorised as 'comfortable'. On the most humid day of the year, it is humid for 38.6 per cent of the day."

HouseFresh used WeatherSpark.com to collect humidity data for 18,830 cities worldwide.
