Etiquette is a set of guidelines that have evolved to make everyone feel welcomed and valued, to make everyday life easier, removing anxiety and awkwardness. The essence of good manners is to treat other people as you would wish to be treated yourself – it does not have to mean adopting opaque rituals and exaggerated behaviour.

Browse our online etiquette guides to find practical advice for unfamiliar social situations – whether you need to know which cutlery to use at a formal dinner, or how to write to a bishop. Alternatively, contact our academy on for information on our courses.
