    I reckon it should be yoru no ame ga suki, which sounds right to me, but I'll let someone who can speak japanese fully confirm.

    Thanks but one questionwhy did you drop the ga. To make it less formal or cant ga go after toki does toki need to be modified somehow ?

    When you use toki it kind of splits the sentence into two parts...
    "When it rains at night, I like"

    Another example,
    日本に行ったとき、ラ ーメンを食べた
    Nihon ni itta toki, ramen o tabeta
    When I went to Japan, I ate ramen

    "ga" is a subject marker, and as you've already specified the subject in the first half of the sentence it can be dropped from the second.
    "ga" also needs to point to something. You could say "sore ga sukidesu" (I like that), but it would be unnecessary as we already know that "that" is the rain.

    Oh all over the place - the British Museum and British Library (because I'm a nerd like that), the Palace and Abbey at Westminster, a day trip to the seaside and one to Oxford. Lot's of fun.
    That sounds like an awesome trip! The British Museum is incredible, I saw the Egyptian exhibition there last year (I am also a nerd like that )
