Who doesn’t love Britain? Home to fish and chips, warm beer, English breakfast tea, and of course, the Royals. It’s a country steeped in a rich history that has evolved over the years to become one of the leading European nations. But what really makes Britain great is the people. Whether from England, Scotland, Wales, or Northern Ireland, the British are a fantastic lot. What sets them apart is their humor. The Brits love taking the piss out of each other and have no qualms being the butt of jokes. Whether it’s jokes at the expense of their culture, cuisine, celebrities, or Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the British are all about having a laugh. That’s why British memes are great.
British memes cover a whole gambit of topics and subjects. They poke fun at all aspects of British culture while also often being relatable. Many British memes also take shots at the entertainment world and use famous people and places to provide a few giggles.
If you’re a fan of British culture and want to have a laugh, we have gathered together 30 of the funniest British memes for you to enjoy.
1. Who Said the Brits Don’t Have Culture?
The British are cultured, especially when it comes to their local foods.
2. Be Prepared for Bad Weather
Don’t trust the weather app. Even if it’s sunny outside you need to bring a coat with you when heading outside in the United Kingdom.
3. I Don’t Know I’m At a Party
Good old Boris Johnson got caught out during the lockdown when it was revealed he was at a party with staffers when he should have been at home. Surprisingly the Twitter user who created this meme is the plane carrier Ryanair. Ruthless.

Elon Musk isn’t a big fan of the British legal system. He also doesn’t like the wigs worn by judges and barristers.

7. Don’t Say a Bad Word About the Hobbit
This isn’t exactly a British meme, but considering writer J. J. R. Tolkein spent the majority of his life living in the UK, I think this meme deserves a spot. This is another fantastic meme that uses the Chris Rock/Will Smith slap meme.

Hilarious memes like this are very relatable. Everyone wants to start the year off well by getting fit but more often than not end up like Mark from Peep Show.
