1. It rains a lot

It really does. Most people joke about this when talking about the UK, but it’s a real thing. Springtime in England is a great time to make sure that you have a good pair of wellies (rubber boots).

2. If someone offers, take the cup of tea

Tea is a cornerstone of English culture. Whether you like a strong brew or something that barely discolors the water, it’s always polite to take people up on their offer of a cuppa — the biscuits are optional.
