Things Britishers do?

Good Morning! I'd like live my trip to London like a Britisher. I just graduated from being a fresher at my job in Leeds but I still feel disconnected to Britishers so I decided to trip to London. What things or places to eat or places to see or places to go can I do to live like all Britishers?

    I’m an American. Will British people beat me up if I just wanna pop in for a pint alone? How will an American guy who’s 32 be perceived being alone?

    Though I intellectually admire it, I really don’t like how British people act like moronic children and travel in packs because of “muh lad culture.”

      No one here cares if you go to a pub alone, it's actually pretty based. It's important to choose a good pub, Wetherspoons or pubs full of 18 year olds are definitely cringe to drink alone in.

      You've been in Leeds all this time and have no idea how the British behave? If you're an international student really make the effort not to hang around in a clique of your own nationality, you may as well have stayed at home otherwise

      No it's not a problem. It's reasonably common to go in alone for a quiet pint. Clearly you can't do this in a city centre bar on a Friday night but there are pubs everywhere you can. If anyone says anything (they won't) make some gag about being stood up by your mate.

        I always just say I'm here for a business meeting the next day. People just accept it because its so common. Half the time I actually am.

      They won't notice.

      >How will an American guy who’s 32 be perceived being alone?
      No-one will notice or care.

      We don't like it either. You're talking about a specific type of underclass, almost but not quite unique to Britain and Ireland. Obviously they can reach critical mass when they go abroad in big packs, but in England itself they are the minority and are suitably cowed.

        No they’re not lol.

        Going out in the UK, you constantly have to put up with big groups of ‘lads’, coked off their chops, loud, obnoxious and desperately passive aggressive.

        There’s a stark difference between going out with my nerdier uni student intellectual type friends and my childhood friends from my neighbourhood who are all quite intimidating in the way that people will act around me.

        Living abroad, you realise it’s solely a UK issue. Same things don’t really exist elsewhere. People are tamer with alcohol. Bars don’t need security. Fights don’t happen in fricking McDonald’s every Friday and Saturday night, so on and so fourth.

          All true, but they are still a minority. Albeit a loud and irritating minority.
          Maybe I was underrating the problem by saying "underclass", but I do maintain that it's mainly the underclass and a subset of the working class who behave this way.

          >Living abroad, you realise it’s solely a UK issue. Same things don’t really exist elsewhere
          This is not true, though our society is so class-stratified that it definitely is worse here. You're a university guy, you have nerdy friends, when you go abroad you probably hang around with respectable people and in respectable places. Europe, and particularly NW Europe, has its anti-social underclass just like we do. A friend of mine who is in his forties used to work as a bar and club bouncer in various cities in Belgium (not Brussels), he's full of stories of what the Belgian underclass get up to.

          What I think has become a huge differentiating factor is that coke is not as common in continental Europe (though obviously it is not rare or hard to get, it's just not ubiquitous).

            yeah british youth seem to have no hard distinctions between soft and hard drugs.

            Im from south europe, lots of people have tried weed at some point in their life but even most of them draw a hard red line when it comes to shit like cocaine or opioids. Maybe some mdma or shit like that but nobody is doing lines at the local pub/bar toilet unless you go to the sketchiest of places.

              I'm talking out of my ass here, but I wonder if the increased resilience of the nuclear and extended family helps southern Europe in this regard? Harder to start taking hard drugs at the age of seventeen when Mum, Dad, Grandparents, and trusted local people could all see you and judge you.

    >what do people do
    I've been in this c**ttree for a few years now and they do what everyone else does.
    social dynamics are a bit different from other countries, especially south europe and the US but nothing's different

    BTW
    >Downtown leeds now costs almost as much as london but still feels like a dense suburbia

    As much as I want to live in a city again I couldn't justify moving downtown tbh but if you're an international student you're probably loaded anyway.

    You think Leeds isn't English enough for you so you want go to London?

    Do you realise how silly that is? London is the most multicultural (i e least English) part of the country. I would definitely recommend you go to Liverpool, Newcastle or York for a more English experience.

    If you do go to London there are certain areas which are more English than others. Bermondsey is a traditionally white working class area although not for long. Chelsea, Kensington is very posh very english area. Pimlico is a very nice area too I personally very much like. In all these areas you can go to a pub and get talking to people easily. Go to a cafe for breakfast and chip shop for supper. Maybe even go to a bookies and stick a cheeky bet on.
