British Isles

The British Isles are made up of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland. Here you can find many different races and cultures, and almost every language spoken under the sun. Despite this, these countries have not lost their identity, and the traditional fish and ships, haggis and Guiness can still be found.  The British Isles can also claim to be the home of sport, with football, cricket, rugby and golf all originating here. For rich countryside, friendly folk, bustling cities and a rich history, this region is certainly the place to be.
