The State Department has issued a travel alert about visiting England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It cites the "continuing high level of terrorist threat," including the potential for subway, rail and other transit to be targeted for attacks, as they have been in London and other European cities. The alert noted the United Kingdom's stepped-up security measures to guard against such a terrorist attack and advised travelers to maintain "a high level of vigilance" while visiting the region.
