ENGLAND comprises most of the central and southern two-thirds of the island of Great Britain, in addition to a number of small islands of which the largest is the Isle of Wight . England
England
is bordered to the north by Scotland
Scotland
and to the west by Wales
Wales
. It is closer to continental Europe than any other part of mainland Britain, divided from France only by a 33 km (21 mi) sea gap, the English Channel
English Channel
. The 50 km (31 mi) Channel Tunnel , near Folkestone
Folkestone
, directly links England
England
to mainland Europe . The English/French border is halfway along the tunnel.

Much of England
England
consists of rolling hills and plains. The north is generally more mountainous with a chain of mountains, the Pennines , dividing east and west, and the Lake District
Lake District
in the north west, containing the highest mountains in the country. Other upland and hilly areas in the north and Midlands are the Cheviot Hills
Cheviot Hills
, the North York Moors
North York Moors
, and the Shropshire Hills . While most of the mountains and uplands are in the north, Dartmoor and Exmoor are two upland areas lying in the south west of the country. The approximate dividing line between terrain types is often indicated by the Tees-Exe line . To the south of that line, there are larger areas of flatter land, including East Anglia and the Fens , although hilly areas include the Cotswolds , the Chilterns , and the North and South Downs .

The largest natural harbour in England
England
is at Poole
Poole
, on the south-central coast. Some regard it as the second largest harbour in the world, after Sydney, Australia, although this fact is disputed (see harbours for a list of other large natural harbours).

GEOLOGY

See also: Geology of England

The GEOLOGY OF ENGLAND is mainly sedimentary . The youngest rocks are in the south east, progressing in age in a north-westerly direction. The Tees-Exe line marks the division between younger, softer and low-lying rocks in the south east and older, harder, and generally a higher relief in the north-west. The geology of England
England
is recognisable in the landscape of its counties, for instance Cumbria , Kent
Kent
and Norfolk
Norfolk
all have very distinct and very different looks from each other. The geology of Northern England

and Western England
England
tends to be somewhat closer to that of its near neighbours, Wales

MAJOR TOWNS AND CITIES

Main article: List of towns in England

London is, by far, the largest urban area in England
England
and one of the largest and busiest cities in the world. Other cities, mainly in central and northern England, are of substantial size and influence. The list of England's largest cities or urban areas is open to debate because, although the normal meaning of city is "a continuously built-up urban area", this can be hard to define, particularly because administrative areas in England
England
often do not correspond with the limits of urban development, and many towns and cities have, over the centuries, grown to form complex urban agglomerations. For the official definition of a UK (and therefore English) city, see City status in the United Kingdom .

According to the ONS urban area populations for continuous built-up areas, these are the 15 largest conurbations (population figures from the 2001 census):

England
England
is generally lower and flatter than the rest of the UK, but has two main divisions in its form – the lowland areas of the south, east, and Midlands and the more rugged and upland areas of the north and west.

is the North West , which contains England's highest hills and mountains, including its highest – Scafell Pike
