Made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the UK packs a huge amount into a relatively small place.
It’s the land of King Arthur, William Shakespeare, Isaac Newton, David Attenborough, Queen Elizabeth II, the Beatles, James Bond, the pub, cricket, Big Ben, fish and chips, red telephone boxes, Harry Potter. The list of British cultural icons is long.
It’s also extremely geographically and culturally diverse. From London, the capital and one of the world’s most important and international cities, to tiny picture-perfect villages set against gently rolling countryside. It has 11,000 miles of varied coastline, ancient forests, vast stretches of moorland, and the wild Highlands of Scotland.
With an extensive public transport network, it’s a really easy place to get around. Perfect for exploring!
