My Impression of the UK

When people talk about the UK, the first impression may be the old gentleman, traditional, prosperous and strong, or Beckham, Elizabeth and Mr. Bean. Everyone has different impressions of Britain, and I would like to talk about my impression of the Britain.

Britain is a wealthy country, the world's leading power since the first industrial revolution. In the 18th century, Britain is the world's biggest country, while in the early 20th century the situation is different. Though Britain was influenced by the war and a series of factors, the superpower position was replaced by the United States, it is still an influential power in the world. With its developed economy, British people attach great importance to the quality of their life. The Britain's working hours is about 22 hours a week. They have few working hours, so they have much more free time to do whatever they like, for example doing the housework by themselves, doing sports, traveling, reading, writing, listening to music and so on. What’s more British people love pets very much.

English afternoon tea is famous all over the world. British have a 300-years-old history of drinking black tea. Afternoon tea was introduced in England by Anna, the seventh Duchess of Bedford, in the year 1840. They will add sugar and milk in the

black tea, and it is necessary to drink after a meal for British. The UK is the largest

consumption country of black tea. In other words, there is no country that is professional than Britain in tasting black tea. The traditional afternoon tea time is four o'clock in the afternoon, it is commonly known as Low Tea. Traditional afternoon tea consists of a selection of dainty sandwiches, scones served with clotted cream. Cakes and pastries are also served. Tea grown in India or Ceylon is poured from silver tea pots into delicate bone china cups.

The climate of Britain is very comfortable. It is neither hot in summer, nor cold in winter in UK, it is warm and humid. It often rains in Britain, in my impression British always need to take an umbrella wherever they go. Also they will often talk about weather when they meet each other just like we talk about whether the other has had dinner. For British people the sunshine is very precious because there is too much rain all the year round. As long as it is a sunny weekend or holiday, there will be a lot of people lying on the grass in the park or on the beach. The government sets up a special place in every residence community, it can be a park or a piece of green area. In this region, people can take a rest or go for a walk, besides it also offers a place for the children to have fun.

The building of Britain also impressed me very much. The British building is old and very beautiful, it’s the typical classical architecture of Britain. The building has a long history but well preserved, some people say that many British sewers have a history of several hundred years. There are many world famous buildings in Britain, such as St.Paul's Cathedral, Tower Bridge of London, British Museum, Big Ben and so on. Now the British building is a symbol of British culture and their spirit.

Britain is a very beautiful and prosperous country, and I hope one day I can walk in the street of Britain and enjoy the beautiful scenery there.
