Great Britain

United Kingdom

United Kingdom is one of Europe’s largest countries and consists of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. For each country, we have travel articles, videos, etc.

The term “Great Britain” is often used to refer to England, Scotland and Wales, including their neighboring islands. Great Britain and Northern Ireland now form the United Kingdom. The Kingdom of Great Britain dates from 1707 Acts of Union between the kingdoms of England (which at the time incorporated Wales) and Scotland.

Highclere Castle is a country house in the Jacobean style, with a park designed by Capability Brown. The 5,000-acre estate is in Hampshire, England, United Kingdom, about 5 miles south of Newbury, Berkshire. It is the country seat of the Earl of Carnarvon, a branch of the Anglo-Welsh Herbert family. The architecture is reminiscent of the Houses of Parliament in London. Popular TV show Downton Abbey was largely filmed here and the tour of the castle rooms takes you into many rooms used in the series.
