The United Kingdom, or UK, is made up of four member countries – England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales – which are situated on the British Isles, a collection of islands in northern Europe. Great Britain, or Britain for short, is the largest of these islands, and is home to England, Scotland and Wales.
Whilst most citizens of the UK (known as the British) understand how complex this is to understand, it’s polite to try and get it correct. Calling a Scottish person ‘English’ is not the best way to make a good impression! Nevertheless, while you’re visiting you won’t notice any borders or formalities as you travel between the different countries, and there are simplified border procedures when travelling from the rest of Europe.
Whether you’re visiting England, Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales, you’ll always find plenty to see and do.
