Great Britain, the island that comprises England, Wales and Scotland, is part of the larger United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. This, the largest of the British Isles, also includes the Isle of Wight, the Hebrides and the Orkney and Shetland island groups. Each of its countries offers visitors something unique and different from its neighbors. England gives you London, with its royal accoutrements and sources of fascination that include Stonehenge and that dry British wit. The Welsh will happily build your vocabulary from their tongue-tying language as you take in the greenery and the lovely simplicity of your surroundings. And Scotland claims castles, cashmere and golf courses galore.
