Information gathered from:
The United Kingdom (UK) includes the countries of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The UK ranks 5th in the world as a tourist destination, and tourism is among the country's most important industries and a growing source of employment.

The economy of the UK is still based largely on manufacturing, despite the increase in service and energy industries. There has been a sharp drop in heavy industries such as steel, engineering and coal mining, while areas such as financial services, communications and tourism have expanded.
