    This isn't Britain, it's just my home town of Blackpool !!

    What about....
    The Royal Family
    The Lake District
    Red Telephone boxes
    Red double-decker buses
    Coronation Street
    to name but a few...
    ...and as mark quite rightly says......the weather!!

    Living abroad I probably think of Old Blighty more than most and the very "Britishness" of it. I usually miss the things I can't get in Spain and one of them must of course be....roast beef and yorkshire puds !!!

    Just been thinking about a Sunday roast beef and Yorkshire pudding pub lunch and it reminded me of it's essential partner ...that quintessentially British beverage....a good old pint of best bitter !!
