What exactly is spotted dick or bangers and mash? What times are pubs open? How can you get from the airport to London city centre? How do you use the Tube in London? What about driving? Everyday language and daily routines that you are familiar with in your own country can be mystifying in Britain, even though English is the common language. For tourists and curious travellers, this unique, comprehensive guide to the differences between North American and British culture and way of life will provide the answers.
For readers planning a longer stay in Britain, questions related to many areas, such as work permits, medical care, bank accounts, getting a driver’s license and buying or renting a property will be clarified.
