Mini Guide to England

Festivals

When you look at the most successful bands and singers in the world, current and past, you can see many English people are at the top of the list. This love for quality music translates into the many incredible festivals happening all the country during the summer.

The most famous one is Glastonbury Festival attended by around 175,000 people over five days. But visitors can also have a great time at festivals in Leeds, Reading, Isle of Wight, and the dozens more with different genres and crowds.

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.
