The United Kingdom is one of the most culturally diverse countries on Earth, inhabited by four main ‘native' nationalities, plus subsequent arrivals from all over the world. The United Kingdom consists of Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales), plus Northern Ireland. The UK is also a topographically diverse country, with such landscapes as the rolling moors of Yorkshire, the lakes and mountains of the Lake District and Scotland, or the stunning beaches of Wales. All this means the UK has something to offer everyone.
London is the natural starting point for visitors and is a great introduction to this varied country, with famous sights such as the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye and renowned exhibitions in the National Gallery, Natural History Museum and Tower of London.
