United Kingdom at a Glance

The most common question asked when it comes to the United Kingdom is, “what exactly is the United Kingdom?” Most people are under the impression that the United Kingdom and England are actually the same thing and while that it isn’t correct, it also isn’t completely wrong either.

The United Kingdom is comprised of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It does not include the Republic of Ireland.

Not to be missed Renowned for its incredibly diverse mix of native and immigrant cultures, the United Kingdom possesses an unparalleled history and an enticing future. As a traveller you will have the privilege of visiting Roman villas, medieval cathedrals, projects of the Industrial Revolution, castles and parks. With thousands upon thousands of attractions, these are the most note-worthy:

  • The excellently preserved Edinburgh Castle overlooks the city of Edinburgh and has been in continuous use for 1,000 years.
  • The mysterious and beautiful ancient megaliths of Stonehenge.
  • Bath for its High Society, Georgian architecture and one of the best preserved Roman baths in the World.
  • Shakespeare's birthplace and home of the Royal Shakespeare Company; Stratford Upon Avon.
  • World famous Oxford and Cambridge Universities.
  • Natural wonder and World Heritage Site of the Giant's Causeway, located 97kms from Belfast.
  • Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, home to three of the most important ships ever built and 800 years of naval history.
