United Kingdom Profile

United Kingdom Flag

This great island has been an influential power for centuries. It attracts and welcomes different cultures from across the world and still manages to maintain a sense of Britishness. This may be due to the intriguing royal family that still represents the Union Jack, both of which are instantly recognisable.

The English language has all but conquered the world with great literature and music, and although the United Kingdom is competing with major heavyweights on the world stage when it comes to film, stand out productions inspired by the works of Charles Dickens, William Shakespeare and J K Rowling have led to impressive film adaptations.

There’s even more to the United Kingdom once you tuck in to the tumbling hills of the Peak District; these have been featured in the novels of Jane Austen and more modern titles such as Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones’ Diary.
