Are you British and living in the UAE? Welcome to our British Community of expats in Dubai! Join us for British Group meet-ups with other people from our home countries. We will eat traditional food, laugh, and enjoy each other’s company.
If you have just moved to Dubai or even if you have been living here for a long time, it can be difficult to find others from our home country. Our British Community is full of expats from the UK who are looking to meet new people and make friends. You will find here a group of authentic and fun people.
In our British Community, we hold a variety of meet-ups for all of our members to socialize and get to know each other. You can choose from casual dinners, drinks after work, or activities out and about around Dubai. And while our group leader is in charge of scheduling regular meet-ups for everyone to enjoy, individual group members are welcome to plan their own meet-ups or share their ideas with the group.
Although our main focus is our real life meet-ups, we also encourage active discussions and conversations on our group wall online. You can ask for advice about living in Dubai, complain, share photos, or start interesting discussions about different topics. Please do not use our British Community as a space for advertising or spam however!
Although it’s very different living in the sandpit than living back in Britain, we have been able to form a community here that makes it easier. Keeping busy and making friends here in Dubai best prevents homesickness. Whether you’re in love with the UAE or not, we hope you will take a minute to join our group. You’re invited to our next meet-up, so we hope to see you there!
