The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (the United Kingdom or the UK) is a constitutional monarchy comprising much of the British Isles.
This Union is more than 300 years old and comprises four constituent nations: England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. It occupies all of the island of Great Britain, the north-eastern portion of the island of Ireland and most of the remaining British Isles.
It's important to remember that the Republic of Ireland is a completely separate state from the United Kingdom, seceding from the Union and gaining its independence in 1922. The Isle of Man and the various Channel Islands are "crown dependencies", possessing their own legislative bodies for domestic legislation with the assent of the Crown. They are not part of the United Kingdom, nor of the EU, but are not sovereign states in their own right either. The UK has Ireland, France, Belgium and the Netherlands as its nearest neighbours.
The 'Great' in Great Britain (Britannia Major in Roman times; Grande-Bretagne in French) is to distinguish it from the other, smaller "Britain": Brittany (Britannia Minor; Bretagne) in northwestern France.
The UK today is a diverse patchwork of native and immigrant cultures, possessing a fascinating history and dynamic modern culture, both of which remain hugely influential in the wider world. Although Britannia no longer rules the waves, the UK is still a popular destination for many travellers. The capital and largest city of the United Kingdom is London.

Discover Britain (formerly Heritage magazine) is Britain's leading historic travel magazine, packed with news and features on our finest stately homes and castles, practical guides to our cities, coast and countryside and in-depth articles on our culture and traditions.
With stunning photography and the best travel and history writers around, Discover Britain has everything you need to plan a holiday at home or learn about the events that have helped to shape our island nation.
Discover Britain is created by a passionate team that are dedicated to bringing you news and features on Britain's finest heritage sites. Here are three reasons why I love working on the magazine:
1. This magazine is totally unique: there is no other historic travel magazine which is focused entirely on Britain's history and heritage sites.
2. The best things are closest to home: many people spent their lives and a small fortune travelling the world in search of exotic destinations but then forget to explore their own doorstep. The British Isles are home to many of the world's most spectacular heritage sites, beautiful towns and villages and historic cities, coast and countryside - you just need to know where to look! We've made it our mission to discover the hidden gems as well as the well known heritage sites.
3. We get to work with many of Britain's best photographers and journalists: every issue features the writing of people who have got a passion for Britain's heritage sites, from curators and historians with specialist knowledge of a specific period of history or historic site, to accomplished authors and travel journalists with a passion for Britain's most beautiful places. All features are illustrated with beautiful photography from both the past and the present day.
