People and society
People have come from all over the world to live in the UK, creating a fascinating ethnic mix of cultures and religions. English is the main language, but it is spoken in a wide variety of accents. England is very densely populated, which means that many people live on a relatively small area of land. This is not the case in Wales, Scotland, or Northern Ireland, and the Scottish Highlands in particular are very sparsely populated. There is no such thing as a typical home or way of life in the UK. People who live in a fishing village on one of the Scottish islands, or on a sheep farm in Wales, for example, have very different lifestyles from each other, and from those who live in the big bustling cities like London, Manchester, and Birmingham. Here land is scarce, so many people live in flats and terrace houses, often without gardens.
