Top Ten Best of All Things British

The Top Ten

Tea

Now I don't know if this is what makes The British the best but hopefully I can go there and taste their tea!

There is something magical about sipping a nice cup of English tea.

Yes. I love tea so much!

Can't live without it

Music

I'm an American who really likes Britpop. Is an American like me knowing who Supergrass, Ash, and Kula Shaker are show how much I love music from the UK? But my favorite band of all time would have to be Oasis, who are also part of the Britpop genre, and the one who got me into music from the UK. Overall, I just really like the music that comes out of the UK, and I hope it keeps giving the world more great music artists.

I'm Canadian & I Love mostly all Music so I'm not Blind to good music!
I heard what the Brits have given the World in Music The whole British Invasion is still one of my fave music eras!

The Beatles, Rolling Stones...You know what? I'm not going to list any more because you already know about Great British music.

Robbie Williams comes from this country and he is amazing.

London London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the south eastern part of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia.

I really wish I lived in the UK. Wish I could've been born there too. I love that country!

Most of the good things on this list come from London

London looks like a good place

What a beautiful place

Comedy

Monty Python, Blackadder, Bottom, Shaun of the Dead - all examples of excellent British comedies.

The list of successful Great British comedies is endless...and I have other things to do.

Monty Python and Rowan Atkinson... Need I say more

Mr Bean is so cute, he is my childhood friend.

People

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

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.

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

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

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.

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

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!

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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Countryside

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

Fish & Chips

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

Maybe not the vinegar but ok

The Contenders

Weather

How unpredictable- no need to make a nice cuppa and grabbing a pair of walkers crips just to watch some nice ITV, the weather itself is enough entertainment!

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

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

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

The Accent

I love the British accent.

Everyone wants to be my friend strictly because of my accent. Who cares about the personality, at least he's got a nice accent. ๐Ÿ˜†

Kate Winslet, James McAvoy, Dame Judi Dench, Rowan Atkinson, Hugh Laurie, Roger Moore, Pierce Brosnan, Daniel Craig, Colin Firth, Anthony Hopkins, Benedict Cumberbatch, Ian McKellen, Emma Watson, Elizabeth Taylor,... need I go on?

The Royal Family

One Direction

How is this higher than Rowan Atkinson? I think one direction should be replaced with The Beatles!

I hate to admit it, but I find Louis Tomlinson of 1D nice looking. What's the matter with me?!

Has the world evolved to lose hearing?

Harry styles is the boy of my dreams (

The ability to be happy when there's nice weather.
