“I would not like to change anything in England, except the weather.” Oscar Wilde
Centuries pass, eras change, people, cities and life itself change, but one thing remains unchanged in the UK – traditions. British traditions are unshakable, like its centuries-old history, the majestic Tower, the Parliament with the Big Ben tower, the unhurried Thames and the status of the English queen. Britain is the indispensable “five o’clock” tea party and meeting friends in the relaxed atmosphere of your favorite pub; subtle English humor based on deep self-irony. At the same time, Great Britain is one of the most progressive countries in the world, the British always keep up with the times, introducing the most advanced technologies, developing science and creating new trends in all areas of art – from music to fashion. But wherever you are – among the emerald sheer cliffs and the most beautiful fjords of Ireland, in fabulous Scotland with its amazing palaces, majestic mountains and clear lakes, surrounded by enchanting nature and ancient castles of the legendary Wales or in the heart of the country – good old England, everywhere, despite the difference in landscapes and lifestyles, there is a certain common atmosphere. This is what the British are not willing to change and what the British are proud of – the glorious and unchanging traditions of the United Kingdom.

Independent administrative units also form the Isle of Man, located in the Irish Sea, and the Channel Islands.
