FACTS ABOUT UK
>London is the capital city of the United Kingdom and it is located on the River Thames. 
>The United Kingdom does not have any official national day. Presently, the Queen's Official Birthday is celebrated as a national day. The four countries of the United Kingdom have their own national days, including St George's Day in England, St Andrew's Day in Scotland, St Patrick's Day in Northern Ireland and St David's Day in Wales.
>In England, in pubs or bars, you can have drinks but you are not allowed to get drunk; and in Scotland you are on the wrong side of the law if you are drunk and in possession of a cow.
>The tube system, despite being the first and the largest underground system in the world, is also the most unreliable and the costliest.
> The Windsor Castle is the oldest royal residence in the world that is still being used by the royal family and that the Buckingham Palace was built in 1702 on the site of an infamous brothel.
>The Queen of England, who once enjoyed extensive powers and authority over almost the whole world, and despite all her present majesty and glory, is not allowed to enter the House of Commons simply because she is not its member.
>The English are tea addicts: an Englishman drinks more tea than any person of any other nation (over twenty times more than Americans!).
>Contrary to popular belief that Big Ben refers to the world famous clock, it is actually the name of the thirteen ton bell. The tower itself is known as St. Stephen’s Tower.
>One of the most well-known theatres of The United Kingdom is the Theatre Royal Bristol.
>London has had many names in the past. It was called Londonium during the Roman Invasion, Ludenwic in Saxon times, and Ludenburg during the kingdom of Alfred the Great.
>The London Eye is the tallest observation wheel in the world and each rotation takes about 30 minutes.
>The treasures contained in the British Museum span two million years of world civilization.
>The London Bridge that fell down 1000 years ago when Saxons destroyed it using boats and ropes to tear it down. People think that is how the rhyme originated.
