England is a fantastic country, with amazing architecture and unique culture.
England is the administrative-political part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, along with the other three “historical provinces”: Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
England is the largest of these components, with 84% of the total population of the UK living here. Sometimes England is mistakenly called the whole of Great Britain. The capital of England is London, it is also the capital of the entire United Kingdom. Also, England does not have its own parliament or government, unlike other parts of the kingdom. The largest cities of England are London, Birmingham, Leeds, Sheffield and Liverpool.
Tourists who come to England, first of all, go to the capital – to London. The magnificent Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Tower and Tower Bridge will not leave anyone indifferent. In London, there are the largest and most famous museums – the British Museum, the National Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Outside London you can see many beautiful and interesting castles and manors. Among the English cathedrals of particular importance are the Canterbury, York, Chester and Lincoln. In Liverpool, tourists are awaited by the famous Beatles Quartet Museum, and in the small town of Stratford-upon-Avon – the Shakespeare House Museum. One of the most mysterious sights of England is the famous Stonehenge, the oldest megalithic structure.
