    Default when is a good time x when is it a good time

    When is a good time to go to London?
    When is it a good time to go to London?
    I've found both types of sentences after googling them. I came to the conclusion that both can be grammatically right. If so, which one is more common in everyday English?

    Default Re: when is a good time x when is it a good time

    I find the first the most natural.

    Unless it's something like:

    February is a horrible time to go.
    Well, when is it a good time...

    And even then, "Well, when is a good time ...?" is a perfectly acceptable response.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
