Do you know there are four countries in the UK? Find the facts of each country and know their people, lifestyle, geography, weather and more before you decide to visit.
England’s capital city is London. Out of four countries in the UK, England is the larger and most populous one. With a more than 50,000 square miles area (about 130,000 sq km) England is the home for the most diverse population in excess of 56 million. The other major cities in England are Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds which developed during the industrial revolution of the 19th century. World’s renowned Universities like Oxford and Cambridge are in England.
With just over 3 million people and around 8,000 square miles area (approximately 20,000 sq km) is admired for its tall mountains and scenic landscapes. Capital city is Cardiff which is around 150 miles west of London City. Newport and Swansea are other notable cities of Wales. Although Welsh is the official language, English is a common language and widely spoken in Wales. With its beautiful beaches, breathtaking terrain, clear lakes and stunning mountains, Wales is the first choice for holidays.
The most northern country of the UK is Scotland which is made up of 790 islands. With over 30,000 square miles of area (just close to 78,000 sq km), Scotland has nearly 5.5 million people living in various cities, towns and villages. Scotland is known as land of lakes (called Lochs) and mountains (called Glenns). Scotland is also famous for its distilleries, who wouldn’t admire the Scotch Whisky? The bagpipers and the kilts (checkered skirts) come to our mind when we think of Scotland.
Part of the island of Ireland, but belonging to the UK, Northern Ireland is well known for its Causeway coasts, glacial ways and natural beauty. When you think of Northern Ireland, widely viewed fantasy TV drama Game of Thrones and fateful Titanic shipbuilding yards surely come into your mind. The capital city of Northern Ireland is Belfast. The area of NI is 5,500 square miles (14,000 sq km) with a 1.9 million population. NI is also known as Ulster, which encompasses the Irish culture.
