Zip Facts about England:

  • Despite the saying “for all the tea in China”, the English consume more tea per capita than anywhere else in the world. They also produce and consume more cider than any other country
  • Big Ben is actually the name of the bell inside the clock tower, which is called the Elizabeth Tower. Windsor Castle, the world’s oldest and largest royal residence still used today,
  • The jury is out on England’s food choices, although it is clear the English love their food, especially the popular dishes with the unusual names, such as toad in the hole, bangers and mash, and spotted dick
  • It is considered a “no-no” (or treason) to place a postage stamp with the visages of the King or Queen upside down on a post
  • The flag of England is called the Union Flag on land and the Union Jack on the water because it must be flown on the jack mast of the ship
