Edinburgh, Yorkshire, Stratford, London, extension to Paris

How do two nations that share a border, an island and a government maintain their own cultural identities?

Though bonded politically by the United Kingdom and geographically by the island of Great Britain, England and Scotland each maintain their own distinct character. In Edinburgh, experience kilts, bagpipes and haggis as you absorb proud Scottish history. At Windsor Castle and Oxford University, the English accent reveals its royal tradition.
