United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is an island country in western Europe, which includes the island of Great Britain, the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland, and many smaller islands within the British Isles.

Britain is like a storybook. Misty castles, dreamy flower gardens, wide pastures, breathtaking beaches, mystical ancient monuments, double-decker buses, the thrill of royalty, the Beatles and Harry Potter – it’s all there in this country like no other. The landscapes of England, Scotland and Wales are so rich and varied that no more than one trip would be enough. So it’s well worth getting your hiking boots and raincoat on and getting out and about to explore Britain.

The country’s capital and top tourist destination is London, which often appears at the top of travel lists as one of the most visited destinations in the world. Other popular destinations are Edinburgh, Oxford, Cambridge and Manchester.

The best time to travel in Britain is from spring to autumn, and you can always expect rain and coastal winds.

The UK was a member of the European Union until 2020. Since then, travellers from EU member states need passport to enter, which is something to remember. From 2023, a visa or permit (ETA) will be required for entry, which will unfortunately further complicate the situation for travellers.

The infrastructure in Britain is pretty good. There are many shops and restaurants that meet all needs. Public transport is well organised and it is popular for a good reason. The road network is also good. The only problem for those who drive on the right side of the road is driving on the left. But don’t worry, you’ll soon get used to it. Motorways are free in most places.

The UK is a very popular destination in Europe for good reason. If you’re planning a trip there, especially if you’re interested in London, read our articles about it. We hope we can give you some useful information.
