1. Sandwiches... Everywhere
2. No Tipping
Oh, did you forget to leave a tip? NO WORRIES! What's that, people are expected to give you good service simply because it's their job? What a novel idea. Apparently this bar (above) didn't get the memo, but I like their end goal.
3. History... Everywhere
I've been to the East Coast before and yes, New York and other cities have amazing historical buildings... because people left this country and went and built them. Walking pretty much anywhere in London is like walking through a history book, it's amazing.
4. Free Museums
I'm a big fan of geeking out over pretty much everything, so the fact that museums are free in England (most of them) is amazing. Yeah, you have to pay to go into the Tower of London and some other attractions, but the fact they feel museums and learning should be open to the people at no charge is definitely something I can get behind.
5. Cabbies Who Know Where They're Going
It's not like tweed is only available in Britain, but you have to admit the island's love of the fabric definitely supersedes that of anywhere else. There's just something about donning a great-fitting Harris Tweed jacket that makes you want to grab your hunting dog, staff, and flat cap and set out on the back 20 acres just to survey your land.
7. Cheap Cable
Yeah, most of it is pretty crap, but the fact that you can get "free" cable (while you do have to pay a small TV license fee) that can get you by is pretty awesome.
8. Reliable Public Transport
Want to get.. anywhere? You can do it.
