Towns in England

List of towns in England

This is a link page for towns and cities in England. Traditionally, in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, a town is any settlement which has received a charter of incorporation, more commonly known as a town charter, approved by the monarch. However, since 1974, any civil parish has the right to declare itself as a town.

For convenience, cities have also been listed and are marked in bold.
