United Kingdom Vacation Planner
Welcome to United Kingdom!
One of the most influential nations in history, the United Kingdom has been ruled for 1,500 years by a long line of compelling and conquering kings and queens. A constitutional monarchy, the United Kingdom is made up of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. Each has its own government, culture, and long and storied history.
England is the largest Home Nation, permanently settled since the Stone Age and the setting for the United Kingdom's cultured and cosmopolitan capital of London. The mountains of Wales made it a Celtic stronghold, protecting its people and its ancient language, Welsh. Scotland still feels remarkably uninhabited, with its wild lands are wrapped in myth and mystery. Like the rest of the United Kingdom, the pubs of Northern Ireland are located in some of the country's most historic buildings, and its culture is based in music and the arts. The Isle of Man and the Channel Islands, although not officially part of the United Kingdom, still pledge their allegiance to the Queen and are popular resort and spa destinations.
