Traditions, Lifestyle & Habits in London

Strict following of rules remains one of main traits of local residents. This is true for absolutely all spheres of life. Londoners are very careful and diligent in work. They are very patient in filling various papers and documents, and carefully follow the traffic rules. It is worth noting that the same is expected from the newcomers. Any violation of public policies or generally accepted norms can cause frustration and confusion. Local people are very sensitive to nature. While walking in the city, you can hardly see people wearing fur or leather. Even the soldiers of the Royal Guard have been forced to change their uniform and instead of hats made of natural bear fur they now wear hats made of artificial materials.

Citizens are very reluctant to drinking alcoholic beverages. Local stores start selling alcoholic drinks on weekends only after 19.00. Tourists are very surprised that in local entertainment facilities and clubs men and women can have rest in separate rooms. In this city also live many Irish and Scots, who do not like being called the British. Themes concerning the national identity and culture are not the best ones during communication with native people.
Besides unique sights, London attracts visitors by its unforgettable holidays. January is the time for a colorful Christmas parade, which attracts thousands of music artists. Within several days here take place various cultural events that follow each other literally for hours. Vacationers and local people are able to attend numerous concerts, fairs and performances. The unusual celebration is organized in March. We are talking about the Festival of whiskey. The festival attracts lovers of this drink from all over the world. During the festival guests have an opportunity to taste hundreds of different types of whiskey, as well as to buy a few bottles of the beloved drink. Early June is the time of the annual Arts Festival, during which are held various exhibitions and auctions. One more important event of June is the famous antique fair «Summer Olympia Fine Art & Antiques Fair», which attracts collectors from different countries of the world.
