England By: Hannah Lyons

England and America are more different that you would think. Their daily way of life, way they speak, political system, and history. England is a significant part of our history because they colonized the first cities.

English social norms

  • Being late to anything is considered very rude
  • it is widely accepted to keep an arms length to people you are walking next to or talking to
  • If you are greeting a woman you should kiss them on the cheek
  • The English have a very high respect for their elders and those who are disabled
  • If you go to the home of an Englander you are expected to bring a small gift such a bottle of wine or some flowers to say thank you
  • If someone invites you to dinner they are expected to pay. In order to pay them back you can invite them to dinner


shepherd's pie is a casserole type dish with meat, peas, onions, bread, and much more.
This dish goes back to the rule of King Wellington
You can't go wrong with fish and chips. If you go to England I would suggest trying fish and chips because it is such an English meal


The pictures above are some examples of the architecture in England. Everything from Castles to Cathedrals to homes have their own architecture. The building style of England is so similar to colonial Williamsburg. Here are some picture of building in colonial Williamsburg to show you how similar they really are.

They are similar to the two story home style buildings in England. The churches have similar architectural patterns too. Where Williamsburg falls short though is in the great castles and cathedrals.
