Stephen Fry Teaches U.K. Etiquette In Welcome Video For Heathrow Airport

Learn this before your next trip.

The United Kingdom is a fantastic place to visit, with sprawling countrysides, historic castles, iconic landmarks such as Stonehenge, and incredible towns like Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch in Wales.

Nevertheless, there are some cultural idiosyncrasies over in the U.K. that tourists should be mindful about when visiting. It's not just incredibly distinct slang they use, either. While British people are typically stereotyped for being overly polite, a closer look at their day-to-day involves a healthy dose of dry humor, a heap of sarcasm, and a pinch of passive-aggression, with those world-famous manners being front and center.

Sound a bit complicated? Don't worry.

Heathrow Airport has teamed up with Stephen Fry to introduce tourists to the finer points in how to act appropriately while visiting across the pond.
