I know that Britain is in Europe but people tell me they are not actually european? what are they if they are not european

Yes and No.
Yes because Britain is culturally linked with the rest of Europe heavily, and shares very similar ways of life.
No because technically speaking, Britain is not connected to mainland Europe geographically.
But, It depends where in Britain you are, If you are in the United Kingdom, You would be considered European because UK is a member of the Europe.
If you lived in the British isles like me (Isle Of Man), Which is NOT part of the UK, But IS part of Great Britain, Then no you wouldn't be European.
Long story short, From a Geographical point of view, I do not think its fair to call British people European, But from a Cultural and racial point of view it is. So... Yes and No.0
