I have never been in the Uk, but If I had the choice to go I would visit Scotland because I want to attend a traditional Scottish wedding when Scottish men wear a kilt. It has got an interesting culture and nice places to visit. If I can go to England, I wil visit Manchester and London to try the gastronomy, drink English tea, visit Buckhinam palace and the Big Ben. We won't miss a football match between Arsenal and Leicester City. Wales must be also amazing, full of legends and a beautiful culture. I would love to visit the UK.

Very interesting, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland seem to have independent people. Or rather, despite of the small number of population (less than 5 million), the greatest thing is that British people respect each other's culture!
Of course, yes! I'd like to go ☆

I've been to London and Oxford. I was enchanted when saw that splendid cities, the nature, people.. And the best part was when I could actually hear the real British accent. I like it so much and I think that American English can't compare with British accent, it's so sophisticated and I'd like to have such an accent. I've got a friend from England and her accent is wonderful, clear and it's a pleasantry to listen to her.
