United Kingdom in World Showcase, Epcot park in Walt Disney World

The United Kingdom Pavilion was designed to look like a typical British village.

This pavilion's street contains one building for each century of British history. The largest structure, a recreation of the royal Hampton Court Palace in southwest London, is a patchwork of different periods' architecture. The little thatched roof house is a model of Anne Hathaway’s cottage in Stratford-upon-Avon. Anne was the wife of William Shakespeare. There is also a traditional hedge maze, modelled after the the Somerleyton Hall Maze in Lowestoft, which dates back to 1846. Don't forget to get a photo of yourself in front of the iconic red British phone booths.

The shops sell British items, such as tea, toys, clothing and Beatles merchandise. There is also a Beatles tribute band called "The British Invasion" that performs regularly in the Pavilion.

The Rose & Crown Pub and Dining Room serves traditional British food, as well as beer and ale. The indoor section resembles a pub, while the outdoor seating is located on a patio overlooking the lagoon. Dishes include Potato and Leek Soup, Bangers and Mash, Fish and Chips, and Baileys Irish Cream Irish Coffee Trifle.

Yorkshire County Fish Shop is a quick service fish and chip counter restaurant that serves only fish, chips, and shortbread. Drinks, including Bass Ale and Harp Lager, are available. Seating is outdoors only. Yorkshire is very rarely referred to as "Yorkshire County", despite being a county, because "shire" and "county" are synonymous in the UK.

There is a sport shop selling British sport equipment, including Chelsea F.C. and Liverpool F.C. shirts.
