From a roast on a Sunday to having an avid interest in the weather at all times, it seems we Brits are a nation of habits and tradition.
The results of the top 50 British traits (that we apparently adhere to even on holiday) were compiled by holiday provider Sovereign, who polled 2,000 UK adults in a quest to find what makes us tick as a nation.
A spokesman for Sovereign said: "Britain has many wonderful traditions which we as a nation are rightly proud of.
"The list shows that we don't take ourselves too seriously and aren't afraid to acknowledge our uniquely British traits."
Our personal favourites were tutting or sighing loudly if someone jumps a queue and doing DIY on a bank holiday weekend! Naturally!
So without further ado, here is the definitive list of quintessentially British traits...
