The existence of England is one that is often taken for granted and looked at far too scarcely.
This may be due to the overshadowing history of the development of Great Britain and the United Kingdom.

England is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. It shares land borders with Wales to its west and Scotland to its north. The Irish Sea lies northwest of England and the Celtic Sea to the southwest.
