Welcome to England

 

Welcome to England - The Country of Tea-drinkers and Shakespeare

 

England is the heart of the United Kingdom bound by Wales in the West, Scotland in the north, the Irish Sea in the north-west and the North Sea on the east. The English culture is well-known all around the world for its fish and chips, tea time and driving on the leftside of the road.

 

Englands landscape extends from the upland hills to the lowlands, through to the urban fringe, into the networks of green space in their cities, towns and villages, and on to their varied coastal seascapes. England is also known for its history which includes glorious castles, famous museums, picturesque villages and majestic cathedrals. One of the most popular English poets and playwriters in the whole world is William Shakespeare, who is considered being the greatest writter in the English language.
