comment What do travellers to England need to know about social class?
You almost start down the path of "it no longer exists" - which is, of course, incorrect. But you are right - for the average traveler it is meaningless.

comment What do travellers to England need to know about social class?
Yeah, I pretty much agree with everything you said, Mark. I also got into a "Royal" event at the palace (got lucky with my landlords). The only time "class" (or its perception) was ever noticeable was while living in Mayfair (nothing fancy) - if you gave the address to a salesperson or whoever the attitude would change (much more deferential). But that was it - pretty banal effect for most of us.

comment When visiting urban areas in Australia, do I need to be worried about deadly insects / animals?
Hey Jonathan. Just to clarify, it's no worse than many other countries, not all. In the UK you have bees and they are more dangerous to humans than many of the high-profile critters in Australia.

Ankur, I'm an Aussie in my 40s and I've been bitten three times by snakes - each time while traveling in the USA. I've a lifetime of hunting and catching dangerous critters and I can assure you that Australia is no worse than any other country (ever traveled to India)? It's a popular urban myth about Australia being more full of dangerous animals than anywhere else: The reality is, it's no different than many other countries. Look where you're walking, don't put your hand somewhere dark, observe the warning signs.

"You usually have to be 25 or older" No. 21 or older is the norm.

"The United States does NOT issue International Driving Permits to foreign visitors, so you will need to obtain this document before traveling to the U.S." (from the link in my answer)
