"Quid - for all of us non-British folks!" Brighton Local Custom Tip by USCgirlie

Brighton Local Customs: 27 reviews and 18 photos

In Brighton, as well as the rest of the UK, you will often hear people say the word "quid." Quid means pounds for all of us non-British. Thus, when someone says, "That's 5 quid," he means "That's 5 pounds." It is also very common to hear people say, "Cheers," which is a greeting and also a way of saying "thank you."

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
