Gypsy Travellers are dedicated to living a travelling lifestyle and see travelling as an important part of their identity.
There is a lot of diversity amongst Gypsy Traveller communities, with different groups speaking a variety of languages and holding to distinct customs and traditions. Many Gypsy Travellers place great importance on family networks and on passing down their culture and traditions through the generations.
When Gypsy Travellers are on the road, they may stay in:
- Sites provided by local councils.
- Privately owned sites run by Gypsy Travellers or holiday caravan sites.
- Unauthorised roadside encampments.
