The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a part of a group of islands to the north-western coast of Europe.The Geographical Position of Great Britain

Great Britain is not large. It takes just 6 hours to travel in a fast train from London the capital of England to Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland.

Great Britain also lies not far from the continent. It is separated from the continent by the North sea and the English Channel. The Channel in its narrowest part (the Strait of Dover) is only 32 kilometers wide and when the weather is fine one can easily see from the middle of the Channel the French coast.

Great Britain has a very good geographical position as it lies on the crossways of the sea routes from Europe to other parts of the world. The main sea route from Europe to America also passes through the Channel. The sea connects Britain with Belgium, Holland, Denmark and Norway.

There are no big rivers in Great Britain. The largest river is the Thames. London, the capital of Great Britain, is on the Thames.
