You're all done. Now all that's left to do is enjoy your holiday!
Sometimes it rains!
Well quite often actually...have an umbrella handy!
Stand in line
Us Brits are used to queuing e.g. boarding a bus, so join us and wait patiently for your turn! ‘Queue jumping’ is frowned upon!
Have your ticket/Oyster Card ready
On the Underground when you approach the barriers always make sure you have your ticket ready as this avoids back logs at the barriers.
Say 'Please' and 'Thank you'
It's considered rude if you don’t. You will notice in England that we say 'thank you' a lot.
When you are first introduced to someone shake their hand (use your right hand and shake their right hand)
Say sorry if you accidentally bump into someone
They probably will too, even if it was your fault!
Visiting Scotland? Their pounds are slightly different
But don't worry they accept British Pounds and England accepts Scottish Pounds.
A 'pony' is £25
A 'monkey' is £500
'Bangers and mash' is cash
'Bread and honey' is money
'Pavarotti' (he was a famous tenor) so 'a Pavarotti' is a tenner (£10)
