Britain doesn't have a written constitution - it's more a set of generally understood principles, mainly the rule of law and the acceptance of Parliament. You can learn more about the main principles here.

Evolutionary Growth: The British Constitution has in no way been condensed into writing in a documentary form at a fastidious time; it has quite an evolutionary expansion.

Unitary constitution: The United Kingdom constitution has been defined as unitary as opposite to essential or uncessential constitution. Parliamentary System: The British political structure is the forge in introducing and increasing parliamentary democracy. Bicameral Legislature: The Parliament based on two offices: House of Lords and House of Commons.

Legislative supremacy of Parliament: The most significant feature of British constitutional law is the legislative superiority of the United Kingdom Parliament. Absolutely this means that Parliament can legally pass any kind of law whatsoever: Unhelpfully it means that there is no person or body whose legislative power competes with it or overrides it.

Representative government: The British Constitution represents the citizens in a common way. Responsible government involves representative government, though the contrary is not essentially right.

Parliamentary government: Parliament itself does not rule, nor is it capable of doing so. The turn of phrase "parliamentary government" is somewhat confusing, and means government by the supervisory in and through Parliament. No distinct system of administrative law: Executive Tribunals deal with a extensive range of matters ranging from social happiness and employment to mental health and immigration.

A constitution  is a set of laws on how a country is governed. The British Constitution is unwritten in one single document, unlike the  constitution in America or the proposed European Constitution, and as such, is referred to as an unconfined constitution in the sense that there is no single document that can be classed as Britain's constitution. The British Constitution  can be found in a variety of documents. Supporters of our constitution believe that the current way allows for flexibility and change to occur without too many problems. Those who want a written constitution believe that it should be codified so that the public as a whole has access to it – as opposed to just constitutional experts who know where to look and how to interpret it.

Amendments to Britain’s unwritten constitution are made the same way – by a simply majority support in both Houses of Parliament to be followed by the Royal Assent.

The British Constitution comes from a variety of sources. The main ones are:
Statutes such as the Magna Carta of 1215 and the Act of Settlement of 1701.
Laws and Customs of Parliament; political conventions
Case law; constitutional matters decided in a court of law
Constitutional experts who have written on the subject such as Walter Bagehot and A.V Dicey.

There are two basic principles to the British Constitution:
The Rule of Law The Supremacy of Parliament
