In history courses taught around the world, especially the UK, it is well stated and mentioned that Iran played an essential role in making history and the beginning of civilization. Some citizens & history Ph.D. of the UK are well informed about UK and Iran history. Especially the globetrotter of the UK might wonder whether they can travel to Iran or not considering the relationship between the countries, which are somehow on edge.
Iran and the UK have far landing relationships that date back to the 13th century when the Ilkhanid dynasty was ruling Iran. At that time, the ties between two different countries in connections were just limited to military advice that was using Iran lands by UK troops. As time passed, the relations and connections increased and decreased in terms of political, economic, and even martial services. Sometimes it was contentions with treaties the other time it was the best of cooperation to the point that for some 40 years ago, thousands of Englishmen have lived and worked among Iranian. Transferred their culture and style of living that still some manners and behaviors are remained with Iranian people and transcended up to this very day. Even though the relationships between 2 parties may have been paused, never stopped. By change of Iran government &its ruling system after the revolutions in 1978, the relationship between 2 countries has entered into a new phase. After the revolution, Iran changed its political name, Persia, into the Islamic Republic of Iran in which Islamic regulations officially formed the laws and costumes of the country by which, before that time, only people obliged themselves to do so, not the governing system. As a UK citizen, it is somehow a little bit different to travel to Iran than tourists & visitors from other countries, but it is not tricky or something unusual.
