The United Kingdom, made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, is an island nation in northwestern Europe. England – birthplace of Shakespeare and The Beatles – is home to the capital, London, a globally influential center of finance and culture. When it comes to one of the top tourist destinations in the world, the United Kingdom is never behind. Whether it’s iconic landmarks, breathtaking coastal views, world-class restaurants or international music festivals, United Kingdom has plenty of amazing things to see and do in northwestern Europe’s island nation. Visit its famous London Eye, Knightsbridge, Buckingham Palace, Great architecture, modern and historic living together side by side, some of the World’s best museums and galleries are in London – and most of them are free! London is world famous for its huge variety of restaurants, covering each nationality and culture from A (the Afghan Kitchen in Islington) to Z (Shaka Zulu, London’s largest South African restaurant). Also don’t miss chance to visit Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, where ancient castles guard mysterious lochs and emerald glens, and where the local spirit is as warm as the welcome.

  • Winchester was the first capital of England, from 827 to 1066.
  • 165 million cups of tea per day are consumed in the United Kingdom. The English are tea addicts: an Englishman drinks more tea than any person of any other nation (over twenty times more than Americans!).
  • You must have heard the “London Bridge is falling down” nursery rhyme. Did you know that this rhyme might be over a thousand years old? The Saxons destroyed London Bridge using boats and ropes to tear it down. People think that is how the rhyme originated.
  • England Has Many Weird Village Traditions – From cheese rolling, gurning (pulling funny faces) to worm charming, English villages have some pretty strange traditions.
  • London’s Big Ben Is Not A Clock. It’s actually the bell in the clock.
  • The Queen Owns All The Swans On The Thames. Counting the swans – or ‘swan upping’ – is done every year by the ‘Keeper Of The Queen’s Swans’, an actual job.
  • It Is A Criminal Offense to Stick A Postage Stamp To An Envelope Upside Down.
