1. Tea and cake. I think the above pictures say it all really. Both tea and cake are awesome in their own rights, but bring them together and you've got a match made in heaven. No-one does tea and cake quite like the British. It doesn't have to be a grand affair: an everyday builders' brew and a freshly baked Victoria Sponge is all one needs.

2. The rolling countryside. There's something about seeing the patchwork fields of our countryside when landing on a plane back in the UK after being away that is always comforting. The countryside elsewhere just doesn't look the same. And we have so many sheep, which is cute.

5. Mulberry. They have just unveiled their latest Union Jack collection (above). For as long as I can remember I have wanted my own Mulberry bag, and now my desire has reached a whole new level. Such a beautiful, classy, British brand. I love it.
Well that's a brief snapshot of my fave British things. There are about a kajillion more, but unfortunately French disjunctive personal pronouns aren't going to learn themselves. What makes you proud to be British?
