Introducing Great Britain
Modern Britain is a tale of three countries. A visitor looking for castles and cathedrals, 'olde' pubs, rolling hills and a sense of history permeating the whole country won't be disappointed.
But this damp little island positively bursts with contemporary attractions, from regenerated provincial cities with cutting-edge architecture to the best in global cuisine.
Sample a little of both traditional and modern worlds and you'll get a real taste of Britain in the 21st century.
