England

England is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. It shares land borders with Scotland to the north and Wales to the west. The Irish Sea lies north west of England, whilst the Celtic Sea lies to the south west. The North Sea to the east and the English Channel to the south separate it from continental Europe. Most of England comprises the central and southern part of the island of Great Britain in the North Atlantic. The country also includes over 100 smaller islands such as the Isles of Scilly, and the Isle of Wight.

England’s terrain mostly comprises low hills and plains, especially in central and southern England. However, there are uplands in the north and in the south west. The former capital of England was Winchester until replaced by London in 1066. Today London is the largest metropolitan area in the United Kingdom and the largest urban zone in the European Union by most measures.

Along with variety, a journey through England is a journey through history. But not the history that’s dull and dusty. History you can feel and re-live. You can lay your hands on the ancient megaliths of a 5000-year-old stone circle, or walk the battlements of a medieval fortress – just as they were patrolled by knights in armour many centuries ago. Then fast forward to the future and you’re admiring 21st-century architecture in Manchester, or exploring the space-age domes of Cornwall’s Eden Project.
