Is there a lot of diversity? Are people in UK accepting of differences?
When we asked people about diversity in UK and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...
"England is a multicultural and diverse nation, with people from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures. In general, people in England are extremely accepting of differences and work to ensure that all members of society feel welcome and included," explained one expat living in UK.
"As you will find in many small village towns across England, there is not much ethnic diversity. The population in Wantage is almost all white and almost all indigenous British. There are a few small churches but not many people attend religious ceremonies. I was told when we struggled to meet people there that most people have lived there their whole lives, and they aren't very open to newcomers. They said it would take between 7-10 years before we would be seen as locals," said another expat in Wantage, UK.
