Cities And Areas Of England2013
By Amelia Meyer
Because England has enjoyed such a rich history, many of its towns and cities exude a similar charm and intrigue. These various places were established over hundreds, even thousands, of years and by many different folk, including kings, queens, religious leaders and explorers. Generally speaking, towns are smaller versions of cities, and vice versa. Cities are usually granted their status by the Crown, and both towns and cities are independently run. However, they do fall under the legal umbrella of parliament and, ultimately, the Queen. As such, they form part of one, cohesive body; that is, England.
Although there are hundreds of places to visit in England, there are certainly a few that stand out; whether it is for their sheer size and magnitude (such as London), their heritage (such as Bath), their intrigue (such as Soho) or their quaint charm (such as Plymouth)
