Write something about the local food, clothing, or traditions!Customs of British people Bristish favor individualism rather than group orientation. They like privacy. An Englishman’s home is his castle. This old saying sums up a fairly widespread tendency. Much of daily life is carried on indoors with the door shut. Especially older people can be really disturbed by having unexpected visitors.

Write something about the origin of the city!Shortly after the invasion of Britain by emperor Claudius in AD 43, the Romans founded the settlement Londinium at a strategic location near the river Thames, where the river could be crossed. Ships from the continent were able to reach the settlement, which quickly grew into the largest town in Britain. The most visible remain of Londinium is the city wall, which was built in the early 3rd century and reenforced in the ninth century during the reign of the Anglo-Saxon king Alfred the Great.
