  3. Animals in Great Britain England is home to a diverse and abundant array of animal species, ranging from crawling insects to ambling mammals, and everything in-between. The country’s nature reserves and parks contain many fascinating species, and the zoos boast an exotic assortment of local and international breeds. Because England is a lush country with a varied topography and geography (comprising forests, mountains, valleys, meadows, farms, marshes and coastal regions), there are a number of different natural habitats from which to choose.

  4. BIG BEN The name 'Big Ben' is actually the name of the bell in the Clock Tower in London, but it is commonly referred to both the bell and the tower itself. Big Ben is the clock tower of Palace of Westminster in London. The tower is about ninety-three metres height and quadrilateral, with clock face on each side, fixed on the upper part of it. It is made of bricks covered with limestone, designed in neo-gothic style. It is surmounted with an iron spire. Each clock face has a diameter of circa seven meters and is made of pieces of glass set in an iron frame. Numerals on the faces are Roman. Below every face there is a Latin inscription: „DominesalvamfacreginamnostramVictoriamprimam”, which means: „Lord, keep our Queen Victoria the First safe”.

By 1536, Henry had broken with Rome, seized the church's assets in England and declared the Church of England as the established church with himself as its head. The Act of Supremacy of 1534 confirmed the King's status as having supremacy over the church and required the nobility to swear an oath recognising Henry's supremacy.Henry's daughter, Queen Mary I, a staunch Catholic, attempted to restore the English church's allegiance to the pope and repealed the Act of Supremacy in 1555.Her half-sister, the Protestant Elizabeth I, took the throne in 1558 and the next year, Parliament passed the Act of Supremacy of 1559 that restored the original act.

  6. Elizabeth 1 Tudor Elizabeth I Tudor of England or the United Elizabeth (born September 7, 1533 in Greenwich, d. March 24, 1603 in Richmond) - Queen of England and Ireland (reigned from 17 November 1558 until his death in 1603), daughter of Henry VIII and his second wife, Anne Boleyn. The last of the Tudor family. Called Gloria or the Queen-Virgin (The Virgin Queen). Elizabeth was the only child of the second marriage of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, who lived to adulthood. Henry and Anna were bound together probably since 1527 [4], but as a result of the Pope's opposition to their marriage could be married until the end of 1532, when as a result of the separation of the English Church from the papacy divorce from previous wife, Catherine of Aragon was is possible.

  7. SportinEngland Football in England was known in the Middle Ages. This sport has grown in the streets, public squares, without any restrictions and regulations. While games often occurred to accidents, injuries, and disabilities and death. Local authorities, then special royal edicts forbade ball games. In the fourteenth century Englishmen this game called football.

  8. Red Bus The London Bus is one of London's principal icons, the archetypal red rear-entrance Routemaster being recognised worldwide. Although the Routemaster has now been largely phased out of service, with only two heritage routes still using the vehicles,[1] the majority of buses in London are still red and therefore the red double-decker bus remains a widely recognised symbol of the city.
