Photos and text on the major towns and cities of Great Britain, the United Kingdom (UK), or just Britain if you prefer. Towns are augmented by scrollable maps and tweets from twitter concerning that town. Towns are selected firstly by population size then by other factors. There are some gaps it is true - due to missing information from the sites where this was drawn. Britains towns and cities come in all shapes and sizes - the largest city London accounts for a large part of the population of the South East of the country, around it some smaller feeder towns of around 100,000 people. Further North there are more larger cities in a broader spread - Yorkshire, the North East and around Manchester having a high population density and quite a number of towns. Scotland and Wales are represented too, but their smaller populations and towns mean that the majority of towns shown are in England. Northern Ireland is not represented here ... perhaps another site for Ireland sometime... Britain is the ninth largest island in the world and the largest in Europe. It has a combined population of around 60 million people (2009) and is the third most populated island in the world. London, Cardiff and Edinburgh are the capital towns of England, Wales and Scotland respectively. It is separated from mainland Europe by the North Sea (English Channel) and from Ireland by the Irish Sea. Geographically, the island is marked by low, rolling countryside in the east and south, while hills and mountains predominate in the western and northern regions Through the years there have been the following counties in England. Some of these have now been merged or removed.
