United Kingdom - Culture
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.
Due to the still sensitive political nature in Northern Ireland, tourists are encouraged to avoid political or religious talk.
While English is the official language of the United Kingdom, Welsh is spoken in parts of Wales, Scots Gaelic is spoken in parts of Scotland, and Irish is spoken in parts of Northern Ireland.
Christian denominations (Church of England, Roman Catholicism, Protestantism, Presbyterian etc) have the largest followings in Britain. There are, however, growing Muslim, Sikh, Jewish and Hindu communities.
