Climate-  Moderate climate with often high humidity.  The weather is generally cloudy with rain in the winter and rain and some sunny periods in the summer.  Most of England's rural area is under cultivation with very few sprinkler systems needed for the crops.  Hedge rows are common along the roads impeding visibility and scenery in many places.  The Moors or "highlands", in northern England and Scotland, often not more than a couple thousand feet above sea level. They are cooler and there is more precipitation than in the lower parts of England.  Often, the "Moors" are foggy and wet.  There are some timber areas but most of the highlands are open fields often grazed by sheep.  Rock fences separate the fields and contain the animals.

Food-  Traditional English food in most communities.  England has a large population of mixed races and most types of food is available in the larger cities.  Chinese food is very popular in England!   A typical English breakfast may be as simple as oatmeal (called porage in England) to eggs and bacon with fruit, juice, and toast.  English bacon is generally sliced much wider than in the U.S., usually about 3 inches wide and similar to a piece of thin ham. Coffee or tea are breakfast drinks with tea being the most popular.  Most English have their tea with milk, during hot days in London ice tea was hard to find because of the shortage of ice.  If you are formally invited to "Tea", that is the evening meal that Americans call supper some Americans still call the evening meal dinner.  Dinner is definitely "lunch" in England.  Supper may refer to a light meal before bed!  We all seem to agree on breakfast but be careful.  Pastries in England don't always mean "sweet" pastries.  What may look like a sweet pastry may be filled with potatoes, and meat.   

Foreign Visitors-  Foreigners entering the England must carry a valid Passport, expiring not less than 6 months prior to the scheduled end of their visit.    Any visitor with a medical condition that requires treatment with narcotics or with paraphernalia must carry a valid, signed prescription from their doctor.  Travel insurance is optional, but required by most car rental companies.  See our link on money conversion for foreign guests.


Language- Wales has its' own dialect, from county to county in England accents vary greatly.  Many of these accents were manufactured by the work of the area.  For instance, in the textile mills of Manchester, sentences were shortened and words dropped but the meaning is still the same and understood.

Money-  The Pound.  The Euro-dollar is still in question in many parts of the British Isles.  The feeling is that the Euro will be of less value than the current Pound.  In the last half of the last century the Pound was changed to a decimal system, the Pound is now 100 pinse, with 5, 10, 20, and 50 pinse coins, as well as 1 and 2 pound coins.  The next denomination is 5, 10, 20, and 100 Pound notes.   Several of the coins were obsolete at the conversion including the shilling and topins  (two Pinse).      - Currency conversion from:
