Trip Report First Time to UK since 2001

Jump to last reply

Just back from two weeks in the UK for first time since 2001. What’s new or different?
1. Sunday shopping
2. Credit cards are now accepted everywhere; not only that, they are now ahead of the U.S. with chipped cards. “Oh, yours is still a swipe card”.
3. Internet cafes have become ancient history, a victim of Androids and iPads.
4. Fewer British beers and more foreign beers in the pubs, including (gag) Budweiser.
5. A new generation of modern pubs that are bigger and more open, more food oriented, kid friendly; sort of a hybrid of a U.S. chain restaurant with the traditional local pub.
6. Public restrooms, especially train stations, greatly improved and most of them are free now (some locally-run public facilities still charge 20p for use).
