What's the difference between GB Great Britain and UK United Kingdom?
UK: This is an abbreviation of United Kingdom. The United Kingdom is itself a shortened form of the more correct term United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Only Northern Ireland is part of the UK while Southern Ireland is totally sovereign in its own right. GB: This is an abbreviation of Great Britain. Great Britain is the three mainland countries of Wales, Scotland and England. Wales and Scotland do not share a border while England shares a border with both Wales and Scotland. The three together form an island entirely surrounded by sea. Northern Ireland is across the Irish Sea and not part of Great Britain, it does not share any borders with Great Britain.
