MORE INFO ABOUT THE UK
Many see the UK as simply London – Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, cups of tea and a population of people who either sound like Mary Poppins or Ray Winstone. The capital is an endlessly entertaining, cosmopolitan behemoth and, yes, we do drink an awful lot of tea. There’s even a fair few Winstone’s about, perhaps fewer flying nannies, but what we’re trying to say is that the UK is so much more.
England itself is a vast and varied land, from the surfer-friendly waves of the Cornish coast to the atmospheric hills of the Peak District and the sheer beauty of the Lakes. Identity varies too, from the warm community spirit of Northern cities to the quaint, pretty little towns of the countryside and the ever-changing neighbourhoods of old London town.
