British Life and Culture

Thanks to teachers and students at Woodlands Junior School in England for giving us this excellent website that clues us in on everything British. This is an excellent source of information for customs and traditions, daily life, etiquette, government, food and drink, education, the Royal family, symbols, and just about anything else a student needs to know about the countries that make up Great Britain. Information is easy to find and read and the liberal use of pictures is a great bonus.
