Introduction to UK Culture
The UK may be famous for the Queen, Loch Ness, and the Beatles, but there is much more to understanding the depths of its various identities. Fancy a whiskey distillery course in Northern Ireland, exploring and enjoying the Eisteddfod cultural festival in Wales, or just having a pint down at your local pub? From maypoles and cheese rolling to queuing and keeping infamously calm, learn how to get the most from every moment in this great green country.

Behind the scenes
CulturaGo’s Introduction to UK Culture course is the combined effort of many passionate, dedicated, and talented individuals.
You’ve already met your course guide, Natalie Dunne, who has shared some of her own insights and experiences on UK culture and its people.
Of course none of the content would have been provided without our hard working, determined and incredibly intelligent head writers, both with PhDs from SOAS University in London, England.
Introduction to UK Culture draws on the wisdom and first-hand accounts of a host of contributors. They include young working professionals and students from various areas in the UK, as well as expats from countries in South America, Europe and Africa.
All of this hard work has resulted in a course that’s the first of its kind: a complete cultural guide, purpose-designed to give you the most meaningful experience of the UK.
