The Scenery

The UK’s not just all about London: head to Cornwall for great beaches, the Lake District for rolling hills and placid lakes – we have it all.

Fish & Chips

Best eaten on a beach in the height of summer, doused in plenty of salt and vinegar.

Easy Access to the Rest of The World

As well as the major London airports, there are plenty of other airports across the UK, flying us all over the globe. The Eurostar rail link also gives us easy access to France and beyond.

James Bond

English author Ian Fleming created the fictional spy novels, which have been turned into box office smash films that are popular the world over.

Red London Buses

Another UK icon, these buses are synonymous with visits to the capital city.

Beer Gardens

On a sunny day, there’s nothing better than sitting in the garden of your local pub with a drink and enjoying the weather.

wimbledon

This famous tennis tournament takes place every summer, and Wimbledon mania sweeps the nation.

The Food

We have a bad reputation for food, but farming is still a huge industry, giving us great quality meat, fruit and vegetables. You’ll find plenty of great small food and drink producers too.

Television

From dramas to documentaries, reality TV shows to fantastic sports coverage, there’s always something great to watch.

Full English Breakfast

At the weekends (and sometimes during the week) we like to start our day with a hearty meal: bacon, sausages, toast, eggs (fried, scrambled or poached), baked beans, tomatoes, mushrooms, black pudding… The elements you choose are up to you, but a cooked breakfast is a British tradition.

Afternoon Tea

This mid-afternoon meal comprises mini sandwiches, cakes, a pot of tea, and scones with plenty of cream and jam – a true indulgence.

Sherlock Holmes

221B Baker Street in London is home to the world’s greatest consulting detective, with Robert Downey JR & Benedict Cumberbatch making Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s creation into a big & small screen smash phenomenon enjoyed around the globe.

Tea

A good, strong cup of tea is for all occasions in the UK: for meetings with friends, for comforting us after bad news, for enjoying in the mornings with a biscuit or two.

The Royal Family

Loved by the media and the public alike, our Royal Family is a symbol of all things British. From the Queen’s Speech at Christmas to photos of William and Kate’s children, we love hearing all about them.

The NHS

Free healthcare is a blessing.

Cricket

It’s a popular sport here in the UK, and you’ll find plenty of people heading to watch matches, armed with a picnic and a newspaper.

Black Cabs

Head to London and you’ll find distinctively shaped black taxis to transport you around the city: a British icon.

Roast Dinners

A combination of roasted meat and potatoes, stuffing, plenty of vegetables and gravy is a favourite meal on a

Sunday.

Non
Poisonous Animals

Unlike other countries, we don’t have crocodiles, deadly snakes, poisonous spiders or killer sharks – we can enjoy

nature unharmed.
