Relatively speaking, the United States is still a fledgling nation, especially compared to England whose culture is over 1000 years in the making. Internships in the UK will allow you to steep yourself in British culture and experience all it has to offer.
Even relationships not based on business can be enjoyed, as traveling abroad gives you the opportunity to make new lasting friends and meet people that have similar interests as you.
You will have such popular destinations and landmarks as Big Ben and Stonehenge at your fingertips, but even something as simple as stepping inside an English pub on the streets of London can be a totally new experience for someone unfamiliar with the country, and that is just the start. You’ll discover the pleasures of a simple cup of Earl Grey tea served at high tea, go big and attend a fierce rugby game at the legendary Wembley Stadium (just don’t compare it to football), and try authentic fish and chips (not the imitation that most American bars serve). And while we are on the topic of food.
