Check out these articles from the Globetrooper Team in this country:

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (the United Kingdom or the UK) is a constitutional monarchy comprising most of the British Isles, and is one of the world's wealthiest nations. The Union 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 is important to remember that the Republic of Ireland is a completely separate country to the United Kingdom, seceding from the Union and gaining its independence in 1922. It counts Ireland, France, Belgium and Netherlands as its nearest neighbours.

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. London hotel and theatre deals are easy to come by, make time to see one of the best selling shows like Wicked, Mamma Mia or the Lion King. 

Locals of the United Kingdom, can find great Heathrow Airport Parking deals on HolidayExtras.co.uk.
