British folk are generally quite fascinating on a day to day basis, but when you pick them up and drop them into a hot holiday setting, they reach a whole new level.

Regardless of whether or not you're from the United Kingdom or you just happen to find this subject a bit intriguing, you will probably have met a Brit like this on your travels... although of course, not every Brit will behave this way! A few Brits have made a mockery both of themselves and their nation over the years, but others are just out there having a good time and making no apologies for it.

10 Search For Familiar Food

While foreign food is great and all, there’s a certain familiarity that comes with the kind of delicacies the Brits consume on a day to day basis.

Whether it be fish & chips, cottage pie, or a full English breakfast, we can just about guarantee that scouting out a restaurant with items like this on the menu will be the first port of call for many travelers coming from the British Isles.

There’s nothing wrong with that, either. Who doesn't love a full English?

9 Unintentional Rudeness To Staff

We’re well aware of the fact that this isn’t done on purpose, which is why you can see the word ‘unintentional’ located up there in the title.

Long story short: a lot of Brits have a tendency to speak in a very clear, slow and somewhat condescending manner when trying to communicate their point to the local hotel staff (or perhaps even locals in general).

More often than not they haven’t actually allowed them to speak for themselves, and when they do, the realization hits the Brit that they can actually speak perfectly good English after all.

8 National Pride

Whether you’re English, Northern Irish, Welsh, or Scottish (or you associate yourself as being British through and through), there’s a good chance that you’re going to showcase that when you’re away on holiday.

This can come in many different forms, too. It could be a pair of shorts with your country’s flag on it, or perhaps the shirt or hat of a local soccer/rugby team that you want to show off to the world.

7 Be Extremely Loud

Sometimes they mean it and sometimes they don’t, but the British have a tendency to be a little bit louder than most when they’re on their holibobs.

It just kind of comes naturally to them, and that could be for a multitude of reasons. Perhaps they’re singing away deep into the night, maybe they’re spending so much time laughing that they don’t even know where they are, or they could just have a slightly louder intonation than most.

It can come across as being a bit arrogant, but we choose not to see it that way!

6 Find A Way To Watch The Footy

United are the early kick-off on a Saturday afternoon, but you can’t quite work out the time difference. Then, once you have, you realize that your iPad isn’t going to function when you try and illegally stream the game.

So, the only alternative is to set up camp in some kind of sports bar around the island.

It isn’t going to be the ideal way to watch the action, but as long as the beer is cold and the screen is visible, they probably aren’t going to care one bit.

5 Complain About The Weather

“Might be too hot”.

Despite the fact that you have specifically gone on a hot holiday?

It’s one we tend to hear quite a lot, but it never ceases to amaze us. Despite planning for months in advance, Brits will continue to complain about the weather conditions from dusk until dawn (and the other way around, depending on how many clubs there are!).

Even if it’s cold they’ll find an excuse, although, if it’s cold, then they probably aren’t getting the holiday experience that they were hoping for.

Either way, there are a lot of was to embrace your time away, and focusing in on the weather isn’t the way to do it.

4 Pack For All Conditions

What’s the point in wearing nothing but trunks if there’s an 11% chance on BBC Weather that the rain is going to start coming down from 6pm onwards?

Even if it’s a little bit chilly, or scheduled to be a few degrees colder than usual, the British will ensure that they’ve got a few jumpers at the ready just in case things go south.

It’s their ability to be prepared for quite literally everything that comes their way which makes them, well, British, in the first place – and we love it.

3 Bringing the Teabags

No, we’re not messing around and this is not an exaggeration.

There are plenty of folks who have taken it upon themselves to take teabags abroad with them on holiday, either because they won’t be available where they’re going or they just aren’t quite as good.

The stereotype that comes alongside being British often involves a teabag or two, and while that may seem incredibly silly, we’re going to have to play into that with this entry.

Still, we can’t blame them for it. They’ve got great tea over there.

2 Burn On The First Day

You could wear all the suncream in the world, but it isn’t going to protect you from the inevitable: the dreaded sunburn.

Sunstroke is obviously far worse and that is saved for the elite few idiots who really don’t look after their skin, but more often than not, you can spot a Brit from a mile away when you’re abroad.

They’re focused on having a good time and because of that, protecting themselves in any way, shape or form isn’t their primary concern.

Head to Benidorm and you’ll see what we mean.

1 Binge Drinking

Binge drinking is silly but let’s face it, this is something that the Brits have been known for – and it’s not happened overnight. They are known in some circles as the drinking champions of the world, although that title alone is just a little bit too ridiculous for us to stomach.

Some take it too far and can cause a bit too much of a scene which is never fun, but others are just daft and will have some fun with their drinking overseas.

They’re letting loose because, well, that’s the nature of a holiday.
