Buzz·Posted on 17 Jun 201817 Mistakes Every Tourist Makes When They Visit The UKPlease stop paying loads for fish and chips!by Cassie SmythBuzzFeed StaffFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. Tourists often only visit London or presume the rest of the country is just like London. Manakin / Getty Images The rest of the UK is a lot more chilled out and green than London and it's definitely less expensive, you should visit! 2. They pay too much for fish and chips. Chrishepburn / Getty Images Some tourists will pay over £10 for fish and chips! Ten whole pounds! They're probably getting fancy fish and chips that are served "deconstructed" and are good for you. Good fish and chips are as cheap and greasy as possible. 3. They refer to Birmingham as Bur-ming-HAM. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Warner Bros. Brummies have always had to put up with American celebs saying "How are you Burming-ham?" at gigs, when it's actually pronounced "Burminhum". 4. Or Edinburgh as Edin-burg. Rochelle @luxitty i was watching something the other day and the woman pronounced edinburgh as "edin-berg." no, that's wrong. very wrong. 11:23 PM - 17 Feb 2014 Reply Retweet Favorite This is self explanatory. 5. Speaking of Edinburgh, tourists should really stop taking photos outside of the phone shop. ChlⓋe @chlxewelsh My favourite thing about Edinburgh is when tourists take pictures in front of the photo of the castle on the wall of the vodafone shop when the actual castle is right across the road 05:18 PM - 07 Jun 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite C'mon guys! 6. A lot of the time tourists don't even bother to visit the beauty that is Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales.

Caronb / Getty Images Tourists think that every street in Britain has cobbles and is lined with thatched cottages. There's a lot more grey terraced housing and corner shops than they think. 8. And that our lives are like Midsomer Murders.

They think that we eat a full English breakfast every day. Amoklv / Getty Images That would just be...a lot. Delicious, but so very filling. 10. And that we actually eat afternoon tea frequently. Eva-katalin / Getty Images Afternoon teas are things that we take our mums to on their birthdays and then regret spending that much money and not looking online for a voucher. They're nice but not a common occurrence. 11. They presume that we all speak like the Queen. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF ABC None of us really speak that level of proper English. 12. Or that we speak like Danny Dyer. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF Momentum Pictures There aren't only two accents in the UK, the Queen's English or cockney. There's actually tonnes of accents. 13. They make the mistake of shopping on Oxford Street. Funky-data / Getty Images Oxford Circus at peak times is actual hell on earth and no one decides to do their shopping there, just get it online it has the same stuff! 14. For some reason, tourists on Oxford Circus walk 10x slower than everyone else. Tayyab 🦋☻ ® @tayyabLDN How tourists and couples walk on Oxford street 07:48 AM - 16 May 2018 Reply Retweet Favorite I understand that they're taking in the views but there should be a designated slow lane for slow walkers. 15. At Christmas time this gets even worse. Mo Gilligan @MoTheComedian Dear Tourists Yes the lights in Oxford Street look nice. All I ask is that you stand to one side when taking pictures. Thanks Eveyone 05:03 PM - 09 Dec 2017 Reply Retweet Favorite 16. Tourists tend to feed the birds.

Most of all they expect the UK to at least be nice in the summer. Tap to play GIF Tap to play GIF BBC Never, ever, come to the UK and expect there to be nice weather. The weather knows what you want and will always do the opposite.
