Social Conventions

Shaking hands is the most common form of greeting, with a kiss on the cheek once parties know each other better.  While casual dress is fine in every day life, some clubs and restaurants do not allow jeans or running shoes, so it is best to check before visiting.



English is the official language of the United Kingdom.



Christian denominations (Church of England, Roman Catholicism, Protestantism, Presbyterian etc) have the largest followings in England.There are, however, growing Muslim, Sikh, Jewish and Hindu communities.
