The United Kingdom has been called the biggest small country on Earth due to its sheer diversity. The UK is short for the "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland" and is formed by the province of Northern Ireland and the countries of Great Britain, England, Scotland and Wales. Each of these countries has a very distinct identity and you should not call a Welshman English or vice versa, and some may not like being called 'British', even though the Welsh (and the Cornish) are the original Britons. The region welcomes thousand of travelers all year long, which is why they have developed a vast lodging infrastructure which includes accommodations such as United Kingdom vacation rentals, hotels, vacation homes, United Kingdom holiday rentals and Bed & Breakfasts.
In this site the different islands in the Irish Sea and that North of Scotland are also taken into consideration. The United Kingdom vacations have too many sites to mention. Though detached from the continent of Europe by only a few miles of water, the UK is permeated by a strong sense of its cultural separateness. Everything is different here: metric system (pounds and ounces are still more popular than the now official kilos), traffic (small island, lots of traffic jams), customs and food. Life in the UK retains an extravagant continuity with a past. Visitors can choose from United Kingdom vacation home rentals, United Kingdom short term rentals and United Kingdom holiday condos.
