  4. 5. <ul><li>The English Channel and the Strait of Dover separate Britain from the </li></ul><ul><li>continent. The climate on the British Isles is temperate. The Gulf Stream makes </li></ul><ul><li>the climate warmer in winter and cooler in summer. There is much humidity in </li></ul><ul><li>the air of England. Britain is known as a foggy country. Geographically Great </li></ul><ul><li>Britain is divided into Lowlands, Midlands, and Highlands. </li></ul><ul><li>The history of the UK dates back to </li></ul><ul><li>the ancient times. From the sixth to the third centuries BC, the British Isles </li></ul><ul><li>were invaded by Celtic tribes. They came from central Europe, and settled in </li></ul><ul><li>southern England. The Celts were pagans. Their priests, known as Druids, had </li></ul><ul><li>all education in their hands. They administered justice, and made a disobedient </li></ul><ul><li>layman an outlaw. </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>The different parts of Britain have their own emblems too. The red rose is the national emblem of England. The thistle is the national emblem of Scotland. The daffodil and the leek are the emblems of Wales. And the shamrock is the national emblem of Ireland. </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>When I imagine The UK, I can’t help thinking about London, the capital city of England and the UK. There are hundreds of historic buildings, galleries and museums in London. </li></ul>
  7. 8. <ul><li>I’d like to visit all famous places in London such as Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliame nt, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathe dral and the Tower of London. </li></ul>
  8. 9. <ul><li>And I’d like to visit other interesting British cities and towns, such as Edinburg, Liverpool, York, Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Cambrige. </li></ul>
