People and Culture

A common characteristic attribute to the English people is being extremely polite, reserved, and taking everything in its stride — usually defined as “having a stiff upper lip.” However, as soon as you befriend a Brit, you’ll find out they’re very warm and great to have around. The pub culture is strong, whether you have a night listening to live music or hilarious stand-up comedy. British humor is uniquely sarcastic and once you get it, you’ll just fall in love with it.
