Cities in England

Our database currently has a total of 51 Cities in England.

There is some ongoing dispute over the definition of 'city', consequently it's been a challenge to produce a list of Cities in England to please all (it's not possible!). However, this list contains those settlements which have been granted official city status via a charter from the British monarch.
