Moving to United Kingdom
Information of interest in a move to United Kingdom
If you plan to move to the United Kingdom, a country that mixes modernity and tradition, you will discover a country marked by its island character and an extensive empire characterized by having a great variety of cultures within its population and territory.
“British culture” is the result of the political union of four countries, each retaining its distinctive elements of traditions, customs and symbolisms.
