Quintessentially English Traditions

A full English Breakfast

Many people opt for a larger breakfast at weekends, which is called full English. This meal includes baked beans, mushrooms, bacon, hash browns, and toast. It is usually served with tomato ketchup, brown sauce or other sauces.

Sunday Roast

Meals that include roasted meats are usually lamb, beef, or chicken. The meat is served with potatoes and vegetables roasted in the oven. Yorkshire puddings are traditionally served with roast beef. Roast dinners are usually eaten on Sundays for lunch.

Put the kettle on during a crisis

The British have a great ability to drink tea when things are bad. The British ‘put on the kettle’ to prepare a pot or cup of tea, then we complain about whatever happened. A cup of tea is comforting for British people.

Afternoon tea

Speaking of tea, afternoon tea has been a delightful tradition since the 1900s. For Afternoon tea boxes, visit www.afternoonteabox.com

We like to queue nicely

You will know that British people enjoy waiting in queues if you’ve ever been to a busy coffee shop or waited for a bus. We form a queue and wait to get in front. Most Brits have never broken the habit of queuing. We are taught to do so in school at a young age. British people may become very angry if someone tries to ‘push through’ the line and does not join it.

Always being interested in the weather

UK weather is often described as being changeable because it constantly changes. You may start the day in sunshine, have rain for lunch and end the day in thick grey clouds. We love to talk about it all day.
