The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland consist of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
London draws people from all over the world. Some come on business, some come to study, to work or on holiday. London is naturally a very English city, yet it is the least typical of Britain as it is very cosmopolitan, containing goods, food and entertainment, as well as people from many countries of the world.
One of the most beautiful countries in the South of England is Kent. It is known as the Garden of England, because it is famous for its picturesque orchards which produce a lot of fruit and vegetables
Wales is the most westerly part of mainland, bordered on the east by England. It is the smallest land of the United Kingdom, but has considerable variety, from the picturesque mountains of the north to the mining and industrial areas of the south.
Scotland is famous the world over as a land of beautiful scenery-of hills and valleys, of misty lochs and tumbling rivers, unspoilt beaches and charming fishing villages. Loch Ness is probably Scotlands best known lake, because of the Loch Ness Monster which may live in the deep water.
The landscape of Northern Ireland is gentle. It is green because it rains a lot. But the rain Showers quickly change to sunshine-and back to rain again. The mountains roll down to the sea. Northern Ireland is a land of lakes, rivers and a varied sea coast. It is a great place for tourism.
