1. Drink lots of tea ☕

Was there ever going to be anything else to start us off? This is probably as British as it gets. Brits love to talk about tea, meet up for tea, and obviously drink tea. While tea itself has been around for centuries, the concept of afternoon tea came into fashion during the 19th century. Ever since, it has become a popular excuse to meet up with friends or take a short break from work. Spend more than a minute in a Brit’s house and you’ll definitely be offered a cuppa*. ☕😆

2. Enjoy fish and chips by the seaside 🐟🍟🌊

You may already know that one of the national foods of Britain is the classic fish and chips. If you haven’t had this, you haven’t really been as British as you could be. A nice country pub is where you might find a great fish and chips dish. But if you want to go a step further, there are hundreds of fish and chip shops along the coasts of Britain which can be enjoyed sitting on the beach in a calm (and often a little cold) breeze. 😂

Us Brits pride ourselves on being polite and using manners.  However we do go overboard and apologise for everything.  Even when we’ve done nothing wrong we still say sorry!  Why do we do this?  I am not sure, but I think a lot of the time when we use the word sorry we actually mean ‘excuse me’. 🤣

4. Explore as many British pubs as you can 🍻🇬🇧

Did you know that there are over 50,000 pubs in the UK? No matter where in the country you are, even in the most remote of regions, there is most likely going to be a pub down the road. They are great locations for catching up with friends over a drink or some classic British cuisine. When the weather is nice, try and find a pub with a beer garden, where you can sit outside in a cosy, friendly environment and soak up the sunshine. 🍻☀️

You may have heard that Brits love to complain about the weather, whether it’s raining or blisteringly hot. But, as soon as the slightest bit of sunshine comes out, the nation flocks to the parks and fields to enjoy it the maximum. The atmosphere is infectious and not to be missed! There are hundreds of parks, such as Hyde Park and Regents Park (if you are in London) where you can hire pedal boats, or venture a bit further to places such as Hampstead Heath where you can take a swim with nature in the ponds!
