The physical geography of the United Kingdom (UK) varies greatly. England consists of mostly lowland terrain, with upland or mountainous terrain only found north-west of the Tees-Exe line. The upland areas as its mentioned in the United Kingdom (UK) physical map include the Lake District, the Pennines, Exmoor and Dartmoor. The lowland areas are typically traversed by ranges of low hills, frequently composed of chalk. The physical geography of Scotland is distinguished by the Highland Boundary Fault which traverses the Scottish mainland from Helensburgh to Stonehaven.

The United Kingdom (UK) faultline separates the two distinctively different regions of the Highlands to the north and west, and the lowlands to the south and east. Wales is mostly mountainous, though south Wales is less mountainous than north and mid Wales. The geography of Ireland includes the Mourne Mountains as well as Lough Neagh, at 388 square kilometres (150 sq mi) as you can see in the United Kingdom (UK) physical map, the largest body of water in the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland.

The overall geomorphology of the United Kingdom (UK) was shaped by the combined forces of tectonics and climate change, in particular glaciation as its shown in the United Kingdom (UK) physical map. The exact centre of the island of Great Britain is disputed. Depending upon how it is calculated it can be either Haltwhistle in Northumberland, or Dunsop Bridge in Lancashire.

The United Kingdom (UK) lies between latitudes 49° to 61° N, and longitudes 9° W to 2° E as its mentioned in the United Kingdom (UK) topographic map. Northern Ireland shares a 360-kilometre (224 mi) land boundary with the Republic of Ireland. The coastline of Great Britain is 17,820 kilometres (11,073 mi) long. It is connected to continental Europe by the Channel Tunnel, which at 50 kilometres (31 mi) (38 kilometres (24 mi) underwater) is the longest underwater tunnel in the world.

Great Britain is traditionally divided into a highland and a lowland zone as you can see in the United Kingdom (UK) topographic map. A line running from the mouth of the River Exe, in the southwest, to that of the Tees, in the northeast, is a crude expression of this division. The course of the 700-foot (213-metre) contour, or of the boundary separating the older rocks of the north and west from the younger southeastern strata, provides a more accurate indication of the extent of the highlands.

Scotland three main topographic regions follow the northeast-to-southwest trend of the ancient underlying rocks. The northern Highlands and the Southern Uplands are separated by the intervening rift valley, or subsided structural block, called the Midland Valley (or Central Lowlands). Many topographic features in the United Kingdom (UK) derive from glacial processes, and some of the most striking scenery stems largely from former volcanism as its shown in the United Kingdom (UK) topographic map.

United Kingdom (UK) elevation map

Map of United Kingdom (UK) altitude

The United Kingdom (UK) elevation map shows the different altitudes of United Kingdom (UK). This altitude map of United Kingdom (UK) will allow you to know where are the highest and lowest regions of United Kingdom (UK) in Europe. The United Kingdom (UK) elevation map is downloadable in PDF, printable and free.

The core of the Highlands in the United Kingdom (UK) is the elevated, worn-down surface of the Grampian Mountains, 1,000–3,600 feet (300–1,100 metres) above sea level, with the Cairngorm Mountains rising to elevations of more than 4,000 feet (1,200 metres) as its mentioned in the United Kingdom (UK) elevation map. In comparison with the Scottish Highlands, the Southern Uplands of Scotland present a more subdued relief, with elevations that never exceed 2,800 feet (850 metres). The main hill masses are the Cheviots, which reach 2,676 feet (816 metres) in elevation, while only Merrick and Broad Law have elevations above the 2,700-foot (830-metre) contour line.

In Northern Ireland, structural extensions of the Scottish Highlands reappear in the generally rugged mountain scenery and in the peat-covered summits of the Sperrin Mountains, which reach an elevation of 2,241 feet (683 metres) as its shown in the United Kingdom (UK) elevation map. The uplands in the historic counties Down and Armagh are the western continuation of Scotland Southern Uplands but reach elevations of more than 500 feet (150 metres) only in limited areas; the one important exception is the Mourne Mountains, a lovely cluster of granite summits the loftiest of which, Slieve Donard, rises to an elevation of 2,789 feet (850 metres) within 2 miles (3.2 km) of the sea.

Scafell Pike is the highest mountain in the United Kingdom (UK) at 978 metres (3,209 ft) as you can see in the United Kingdom (UK) elevation map. It is located in Lake District National Park, in Cumbria. It is sometimes confused with the neighbouring Scafell, to which it is connected by the col of Mickledore. The name Pikes of Sca Fell was originally applied collectively to the peaks now known as Scafell Pike, Ill Crag and Broad Crag, which were considered subsidiary tops of Scafell (which looks higher from many angles).

United Kingdom (UK) rivers map

Map of United Kingdom (UK) rivers

The rivers in United Kingdom (UK) map shows the principal rivers with their names of United Kingdom (UK). The rivers map of United Kingdom (UK) will allow you to find the main rivers which flow in and through United Kingdom (UK) in Europe. The United Kingdom (UK) rivers map is downloadable in PDF, printable and free.

The longest river in the United Kingdom (UK) is the River Severn (220 mi, 354 km) which flows through both Wales and England as its mentioned in the United Kingdom (UK) rivers map. The longest rivers in the United Kingdom (UK) contained wholly within each of its constituent nations are: England: River Thames (215 mi, 346 km), Scotland: River Tay (117 mi, 188 km), N. Ireland: River Bann (76 mi, 122 km), Wales: River Tywi (64 mi, 103 km).

Almost 1500 discrete river systems, comprising over 200,000 km of watercourses may be identified across the United Kingdom (UK) but, in a global context, the United Kingdom (UK) rivers are mere streams - being characteristically short, shallow and subject to considerable man-made disturbance as you can see in the United Kingdom (UK) rivers map. River flows can typically range through several orders of magnitude and low flows tend to be very modest in most river basins. For this reason in particular United Kingdom (UK) rivers are especially sensitive to regime changes resulting from climatic variation or the net effect of a range of anthropogenic factors (e.g. heavy abstraction rates, major land use change).

Rivers are major agents of landscape modification and, in turn, are greatly influenced by the catchments through which they flow (see the United Kingdom (UK) rivers map). Reflecting the very wide variety of climate and catchment types encountered across the United Kingdom (UK), rivers range from mountain torrents draining headwaters receiving up to five metres of rain a year, to much more placid groundwater-fed streams in parts of the southern and eastern England where rainfall is an order of magnitude lower. Relative to most parts of the world, United Kingdom (UK) river flow patterns are less dominatingly influenced by seasonal contrasts in rainfall or melt-water contributions.

The mountains in United Kingdom (UK) map shows the principal mountains with their names in United Kingdom (UK). The mountains map of United Kingdom (UK) will allow you to find the main mountains ranges and highest mountains of United Kingdom (UK) in Europe. The United Kingdom (UK) mountains map is downloadable in PDF, printable and free.

The highest mountains in the United Kingdom (UK) are in Scotland in the Scottish Highlands. A mountain in Scotland with a height over 3,000 feet (914.4 m) is called a Munro as its shown in the United Kingdom (UK) mountains map. A Marilyn is a mountain or hill in the United Kingdom (UK), Republic of Ireland or Isle of Man with a prominence of at least 492 feet (150 metres).

The Cumbrian Mountains as its mentioned in the United Kingdom (UK) mountains map, which include the famous Lake District celebrated in poetry by William Wordsworth and the other Lake poets, constitute an isolated, compact mountain group to the west of the northern Pennines. Many deep gorges, separated by narrow ridges and sharp peaks, characterize the northern Cumbrian Mountains, which consist of tough slate rock.

The name of Marilyn was coined as a pun to go with the designation Munro. Thus the names when spoken together sound like the legendary American starlet, Marilyn Monroe. There are 158 Marilyns mountain in Wales as you can see in the United Kingdom (UK) mountains map. There are 176 Marilyns in England with the higest peak at Scafell Pike in the Lake District National Park in north west England. There are 65 Marilyns in Northern Ireland.

Regional climates in the United Kingdom (UK) are influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and latitude. Northern Ireland, Wales and western parts of England and Scotland, being closest to the Atlantic, are generally the mildest, wettest and windiest regions of the United Kingdom (UK), and temperature ranges here are seldom extreme. Eastern areas as its shown in the United Kingdom (UK) climate map are drier, cooler, less windy and also experience the greatest daily and seasonal temperature variations. Northern areas are generally cooler, wetter and have a slight bigger temperature range than southern areas.

The United Kingdom (UK) is mostly under the influence of the maritime tropical air mass from the south-west, different regions are more susceptible than others when different air masses affect the country: Northern Ireland and the west of Scotland as its mentioned in the United Kingdom (UK) are the most exposed to the maritime polar air mass which brings cool moist air; the east of Scotland and north-east England are more exposed to the continental polar air mass which brings cold dry air; the south and south-east of England are more exposed to the continental tropical air mass which brings warm dry air (and consequently most of the time the warmest summer temperatures); Wales and the south-west of England are the most exposed to the maritime tropical air mass which brings warm moist air.

The air masses are strong enough in their respective areas during the summer there can sometimes be a massive difference in temperature between the far north/north-west of Scotland (including the Islands) and south-east of England - usually around 10-15°C (18-27°F) but can be as much as 20°C (36°F) or more as you can see in the United Kingdom (UK). An example of this could be that in the height of summer the Northern Isles could be sitting at around 15°C (59°F) and areas around London could be basking at 30°C (86°F).
