Britain is one of Europe's major tourist destinations, particularly for people from other English-speaking countries; and thanks to the importance of the English language as a world language, Britain is a country whose culture, language, life and ways are studied by millions of students worldwide.
    There is, on the Internet, a wealth of information on Britain – some of it full, some of it interesting, but also a lot of it confusing and hard to find.

    Launched in 2014, About-Britain.com is currently under development, and new pages are being added as soon as they are ready. Eventually, About-Britain.com will be as extensive as our partner site About-France.com, founded ten years earlier.

For general and tourist information on other countries, see About-France.com  and About-Spain.net
