Tourism plays a significant part in the economic life of England. The United Kingdom as a whole is the 10th most visited country. London, Oxford, Cambridge and Canterbury remain popular historic tourist destinations. England's long history and pervasive culture, make it a popular tourist destination. Many tourist spots have witnessed great events of history that have shaped England and the greater world. Many of England's tourist attractions have inspired work of poets, folk writers, artists for thousands of years; the city of Manchester, famous for being the first industrialised city, Liverpool, the famous birthplace of The Beatles are popular tourist destinations that show the more modern side to England. The English countryside has been described as suitable to ecotourism, if affected by the sad irony "that the things that make the landscape of Britain comely and distinctive are entirely no longer needed. Hedgerows, country churches, stone barns, verges full of nodding wildflowers and birdsong, sheep roaming over wind-swept fells, village shops and post office and much more can only be justified on economic grounds, for most people in power those are the only things that matter".
