It might seem like a random list

Roast beef and Yorkshire pudding
Test matches
Glorious gardens
Regional accents
Driving on the left
Queuing
Saying sorry when it’s not my fault
Fish and chips
The Weather
Stiff upper lip
The Queen
Last night of the proms
Donkeys at the seaside
Saying “How do you do?” and never answering the question
Marks and Spencer
Village churches
Allotments



It's St George's Day 





(and Shakespeare's birthday).

What else is "quintessentially English"?

    I know a great lot of us are English (in ancestry) but we certainly do these here too.

    Church bells ringing out (not just a couple of bells donging)
