London Bridge - UK

The United Kingdom includes Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) and Northern Ireland, and lies off the north-west coast of mainland Europe. The UK is500km wide and nearly 1,000-km long. Its closest continental neighbours are France and Belgium. It lies between latitudes 50 North and 60 North London, the capital, is close to the same line of latitude as Berlin, Vancouver and Warsaw. Great Britain is the largest island in Europe and the eight largest in the world. It is about the same size as Honshu, the biggest of the islands that make up Japan, and about twice the size of Iceland and Cuba.

In mid-1996, the population of Britain was 58.8 million making the country 18th in the world in terms of population size. The total population of England is estimated at 49.1 million, Wales at 2.9 million, Scotland at 5.1 million and Northern Ireland at 1.7 million people. England has the highest population density and Scotland has the lowest.

The population of Britain's major cities in mid-1996 was as follows: London 7,740,300; Birmingham 1,020,600; Manchester 430,800; Glasgow 616,430; Edinburgh 448,850; Belfast 297,300; Cardiff 315,000.

From the peace of the countryside to the bustle of vibrant cities, from sport to shopping, from heritage to music, fashion and film, tourism in Britain is nothing if not diverse. With something to offer everyone, it's hardly surprising that Britain is one of the world's leading tourist destinations. Britain's tourism industry is big business - 53 billion each year - and it's growing all the time. Tourism has accounted for one in six of all new jobs created in the last 10 years

Britain boasts a huge range of places to stay - from the simplest cottage to the five star luxury of its top hotels. Guest houses, inns, bed and breakfasts, and holiday centres help ensure that Britain can offer accommodation to suit every taste and every pocket. When it comes to eating and drinking the choice is, if anything, even wider. Britain's restaurants are now considered to be among the best in the world, and you can enjoy a drink anywhere from the most traditional of pubs to the most sophisticated of bars.

The Tower of London is one of the most popular and imposing of London's historical sites. It comprises not one, but 20 towers, the oldest of which, the White Tower, dates back to the 11th century and the time of William the Conqueror. It is the Tower's evil reputation as a prison that ensures it remains a much visited tourist spot today, together with the rich and varied history that surrounds it.

Visitors are the lifeblood of Britain's tourism industry. It is crucial, though, to keep in mind the need to protect the very attractions that those visitors come to see. Environmental issues are at the top of the Government's agenda. And bodies like the Countryside Agency are building partnerships with farmers, landowners and local authorities to make sure that the countryside is there to be enjoyed not only now but in the future
