In a world that's changing constantly, it is comforting to know that some aspects of British life are here to stay. Every day, we are surrounded by a host of quintessentially British 'things' so familiar that we may neglect to appreciate them. From our morning tea to the double-decker bus to work, the post box and the British pub, the UK is filled with unique and quirky objects, customs and services. Without them, we would be lost, and a lot less British to boot. In this wonderful volume, best-selling author Harry Oliver tells the fascinating stories behind the British icons that are part of our rich heritage. From the great British inventions, institutions and sportig pursuits we love to our customs, our food and drink, our historical figures and linguistic peculiarities, within these pages lies and explanation of all that makes Britain Great.
