Great Britain is a 60 million acre island resort according to British Airways.

Not that I can afford to visit, but would you agree with them?

Well 30 million of those acres have been taken up by Heathrow and Buckingham Palace.
They seemingly build new terminals at London's main airport every year.
There's also quite a bit of Chav infested urban blight and decay.
We also have a two tier polictical system just like the States.
And there's a chance of the weather being cloudy with a chance of meatballs in the summer.
We also have a society divided into the haves and the have- nots.
But other than that it's a green and pleasant land...
So glad you could make it!

It's beautiful at times and in certain places but hardly Australia.

i'm lucky enough to have lived all over the UK, cornwall, somerset, south wales, wiltshire, yorkshire, and it's beautiful. my family come from ireland, which has some great scenery, and scotland looks fantastic in all weathers (fortunately!), so i, for one, am glad I live in britain.
is it any coincidence that bill bryson, the world's best travel writer, came to live over here? (particularly in yorkshire.)
compared to many other places, the UK is very, very green, and that's always a good thing!
nowhere else has such a range of moorland, mountains, dales, dramatic coastlines, valleys and fells, and on the right day, can beat anything any other country has to offer in terms of scenery.
people who say britain isn't beautiful really should get out more and travel it, instead of relying on the bits they see on eastenders.

Agreed! I hail from a part of the world not too far from you, easy access to the Lakes, Yorkshire Dales, the Pennines. All beautiful, often lush and green.
I go to uni in Cardiff, and again on my way there via train you see some incredibly beautiful scenery.
I go to Cornwall every year, and I defy anyone to find somewhere nicer than Cornwall on a hot, clear summer's day (when we get them).

you ask the impossible!!
I was practically raised in a little village called crantock, just outside of newquay, and the walk through travella and down to the river gannel is for me, the nicest walk on earth! (maybe the road from amesbury to stonehenge comes close, but for different reasons.)
cornwall is littered with prehistoric remains, and watching the '99 eclipse from the merry maidens stone circle near penzance was definitely one of the highlights of my life so far!

I figured that the UK has its problems like any other nation, based on what I have read here.  But it can't be so bad if you have so many tourists and immigrants coming in.

Just thought I would show you how your nation was being marketed to the world.

That's a nice beach scene up there.  Maybe it really is an island resort.

I would love to visit some summer.  To England but also Ireland and especially Scotland.  I love the mountains and the pastures, the seacoast is no special draw because I see it often where I live but any place where I might have to pull out long sleeves in summer is THE place for me ;)

  Imagination is the power in the turn of a phrase.

you'd love scotland!
I know it gets a lot of bad press due to the weather, but with the scenery they have, you really don't mind it!
I once spent a week in aberdeen, checking out the dozens of prehistoric sites they have around there, and it p!ssed it down the entire time, day&night, and believe me, sleeping in a tent for a week in the rain? the noise drove you crazy!! but I loved every minute of it,and wouldn't have missed it for the world!

Just don't goto London, Manchester, infact any of the cities. The countryside and highlands are really nice. Oh the lake district too,

Small cities are nice though. Cardiff, Bath, Durham...

I don't think it would be wise for any British tourism agency to recruit you, otherwise we'd never get any tourists or their much-needed money.

You can imagine it:

"Hello, sir.  I'm phoning from New York City.  Me and my new wife are planning on coming to visit Britain later this year.  Can you tell us any places that you think we would like to visit?

"Don't bother, pal.  It's cold, rainy, miserable.  Not only that, but there are no places worth seeing and there is nothing at all for you to do.  Go to Benidorm instead."
