"Drinking" London Local Custom Tip by Cham

London Local Customs: 717 reviews and 883 photos

It's customary in london to go to a pub or a bar and have a drink... this means if you're meeting up with english friends that you buy the drinks all night... ok it was worth a try, but a number of people don't understand the concept of rounds...

one person buys a round of drinks... then next time another person in the group does the same... then another etc... so really you are only paying for your drinks.

the English like to drink though, we can't do it as well as the scottish or the irish, but at the stage where most people a feeling like they're going to be sick, the english keep on going...

you'll see some nice sites after all the bars close though lol
