 About UK

Great Britain, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom or UK or Britain, or even England, a country in northwestern Europe that comprises England, Wales, Scotland, and the province of Northern Ireland which occupies the northeastern part of the island of Ireland, and there is the country’s only land border, the one with the Republic of Ireland.

The UK is separated from Continental Europe by the English Channel. The kingdom is situated on an archipelago known as the British Isles with the main islands of Great Britain and Ireland, and the surrounding island groups of the Hebrides, the Shetlands, the Orkneys, the Isle of Man and the Isle of Wight. The islands are located southeast of Iceland, west of Norway and Denmark, between the North Sea in east and the North Atlantic Ocean in west. The UK shares maritime borders with Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, and the Faroe Islands (Denmark).

The UK was one of the 28 member states of the European Union (EU), but since a kind of populist referendum in June 2016, the UK will in a little while not anymore be a member of the EU.
