What would a trip to the UK or Ireland be without a trip to the pub? If you want to see what real life in Britain is all about, you must go to the pub. Pub-going is by far the most popular native pastime. The 61,000 pubs in Britain have over 25 million loyal customers. Over three-quarters of the adult population go to pubs, and over a third are ‘regulars’, visiting the pub at least once a week. The pub is a central part of British life and culture.
