Stephen Fry has joined forces with Heathrow airport to give international passengers the 'Stephen Fry's Guide to the UK.'

Stephen Fry has teamed up with Heathrow airport to give international passengers a handy guide to the UK.

The 58-year-old comedian has joined forces with the major international airport to create 'Stephen Fry's Guide to the UK,' a tongue-in-cheek video for the airport, to give visitors, who haven't been to the popular European country before, little tips and tricks on handling British etiquette.

Stephen said: "From Snowdon to the Scottish Highlands and London to Londonderry, modern Britain is a truly extraordinary place. With a fantastic blend of cultures and traditions, we're a nation renowned for its sense of humour, unspoken rules and little quirks.

"No matter where you go, you're sure to talk about the weather, will need something waterproof to hand, and are likely to meet someone who feels the need to apologise profusely for everything they do.

"In fact our nation's gentle apologetic manner is one of the things that I miss most when I'm out of the country.

"I hope people enjoy watching the video, which celebrates some of our wonderful eccentricities and welcomes people to the UK with a good old dose of British humour."

Set in a quaint British pub, the three minute video sees Stephen pondering the many things that make the UK a great place to visit, from the famous Scottish highlands to the Giant's Causeway and St Paul's Cathedral.

The funnyman also dishes advice on what to do when conversation strikes up with strangers, the importance of mastering 'the agreement rule,' cheering smashed plates and glasses, and handling the awkward 'after you' loop.

Visitors can access the guide on arrival at Heathrow via the airport's free Wi-Fi page and on YouTube.
