The “United Kingdom” (UK) or officially the “United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland” is commonly known as Britain and is a sovereign country in western Europe.  The United Kingdom consists of four countries: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland

The United Kingdom lies off the north-western coast of the European mainland and includes the island of Great Britain, the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland and many smaller islands. Northern Ireland is the only part of the United Kingdom that shares a land border with another sovereign state‍, the Republic of Ireland.

The United Kingdom has many great cities with some fabulous museums. The following will be featured in “Joy of Museums”:
