List of UK Counties

Over the years I always struggled to find an accurate list of UK Counties. In the end I created my own a few years back. Where things have been changed or I have been advised of a mistake I have updated this list. You are welcome to use the list, should you notice any issue with it, please comment below.

Note: The list focuses on Ceremonial Counties, there are a few different types of ‘County’ in the UK and this sometimes causes different lists around the web.

List last updated: 2nd Jan 2021.

    Hi there, thanks for your comments. My understanding is that Middlesex is an historic county and not a ceremonial county. 🙂
