8 hours of rain along the banks of the Thames river in the heart of London. Sounds in the video which can be heard are moderate rain, light wind, rain splashing on the ground / nearby trees and very distant thunder. The chimes of Big Ben only play at the start of the video to give some atmosphere. The chimes you hear were actually recorded on the last day before Big Ben went silent for repairs (until 2021). Let me know what you think of this rainy ambience in the comments below. Happy dreams.

Benefits of nature sounds for sleep and relaxation 💤💤 Research has shown that cognitive responses to nature sounds result in a calmer state of mind allowing or brain to relax and focus for increased productivity. A calmer mind allows our body to better control the 'fight or flight' response, which is a physiological response to an event which is stressful. The ability to control this stress response will keep our mind in a more relaxed controlled state, allowing us to have a more refreshing sleep and better general mood. During relaxation and sleep, nature sounds are a great way to drown out external stimuli in your environment which may disturb your peace, so in that respect they are perfect to mask out these noises.
