Great Britain is the official name given to the two kingdoms of England and Scotland, and the principality of Wales. The United Kingdom (UK) includes these areas as well as Northern Ireland. Britain refers to only England and Wales, though some will shorten Great Britain with this term.
Breathtaking picture of a beautifully preserved Roman bath in Bath, England. I stood in this very spot in 1998. I can still remember the damp air on my skin and the interesting smell of the ancient water.
