    Default to/in

    Hello everyone.

    We say 'Have you ever been to England?' but do we say 'Have you ever been to/in Britain?'?

    As far as I know you could say:
    'Have you been in England?' meaning 'I know that you went to England some time ago but - are you still there?' or something like that.
    The word 'ever' is somewhat unsuitable in that sentence.
    I'm waiting for any confirmation alongside queenbu.
