Going British in Salt Lake City

Rate this post

Salt Lake is as red-blooded an American city as any other, but every now and then, it’s nice to branch out a little and sample some other cultures, isn’t it? Broadening your horizons, seeing what life across the pond is like and so forth. Though traveling is expensive and can be difficult to coordinate, especially if you have a big family. But that shouldn’t have to hold you back forever. Luckily, for those in town curious about life over in England, Salt Lake has plenty of local attractions that can help you get a handle on all the sights, sounds and tastes of the UK.

Courtesy of BBC America, naturally, here are a few things in Salt Lake City that can help scratch that “going British” itch:

  • The King’s English Bookshop: Built to look like a nice old English cottage, this place has tons of English books to choose from and events to look forward to.
  • The London Market: Sitting at 439 East 900 South, this specialty import store has a wide array of British treats for you to take home, from Yorkshire pudding to authentic English tea to Marmite (forewarning: it’s an acquired taste). If you’re having a hard time finding the place, just look for the driveway with Mini Cooper draped in the Union Jack. Can’t miss it.
  • Utah Film Center: Okay, there’s nothing British about the theater per se, but it’ll be showing two British movies over the next couple weeks! Check out the Oscar-nominated “The Reader” on September 27 and the family hit “Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit” on October 5. They’re both free!
