5 Writers

Agatha Christie, Jane Austen, William Shakespere, Charles Dickens, Catherine Cookson. And don't even get me started on British comedy writers. Good God, we'd be here forever, darling! - Britgirl

Please don't forget C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. Oh, and Charlotte Bronte and Mary Shelley. These British authors I cannot do without.

Don't you silly Americans say that 'swagger' was invented by you. It was invented by Shakespeare himself. So were blanket and moonbeam. 😉

6 People

Very friendly, polite, cracking sense of humour, intelligent... - Britgirl

7 Fish & Chips

Wow! I just adore fat greasy chips, floating in vinegar and smothered in salt... I'm so hungry right now. - Britgirl

8 Inventions

It is so funny those Americans are so full of themselves but they do not realise that the lightbulb (Arc lamp), Baseball (Rounders), and the internet were invented by the British. Ah those funny Yanks. - Epekov

The internet. Google the rest (which you will find on said internet). There are far too many world-changing inventions to go into. - Britgirl

Well, not the internet but certainly the World Wide Web. - Cazaam

9 Sense of Humour
10 Cricket Cricket Cricket is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of eleven players on a cricket field, at the centre of which is a rectangular 22-yard-long pitch with a wicket, a set of three wooden stumps sited at each end.

Watching English cricket on a Summer's day; the sound of polite applause as a plane drones overhead. Just wonderful. - Britgirl

And it's even more wonderful if that plane's a Spitfire or a Hurricane... - PetSounds

The Contenders

11 The Royal Family
12 The Countryside

Ah, the welcoming (! ) aroma of cow-dung fills the nostrils as a pitchfork-waving gentleman screams "Get orf moy land! " Perfect... - Britgirl

13 Weather

Very unpredictable. Yes us Brits love a jolly good moan about it, but we secretly love it. A conversation-starter at least! - Britgirl

Ah british weather one minute its sunny the other minute pouring with rain

14 Actors
15 Downton Abbey Downton Abbey Downton Abbey is a historical period drama television series created by Julian Fellowes and co-produced by Carnival Films and Masterpiece.

Thank you to whoever added this. I love my weekly hour of escapism into an era I absolutely adore. - Britgirl

16 Britgirl

I find it humorous that "Britgirl" was put onto this list as being one of the best things about Great Britain, which is a marvelous country indeed.

She's the main reason I'd Go Across the Pond!

Britgirl is The Best & she's British! - Curti2594

I added you, Britgirl. I adore you..

I'd vote her for prime minister, if I was a British citizen. - ethanmeinster
