England is a country to the northwest of Continental
Europe and is the largest and most populous constituent country
of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
Its inhabitants account for more than 85% of the total population
of the United Kingdom, whilst the mainland territory of England
occupies most of the southern two-thirds of the island of
Great Britain and shares land borders with Scotland to the
north and Wales to the west. Elsewhere, it is bordered by
the North Sea, Irish Sea, Atlantic Ocean, and English Channel.
became a unified state during the tenth century and takes
its name from the Angles —one of a number of Germanic
tribes who settled in the territory during the fifth
and sixth centuries. The capital city of England is London,
which is the largest city in Britain and largest city
in the European Union.
ranks among the most influential and far-reaching centres
of cultural development in the history of the world.
It is the place of origin of both the English language
and the Church of England, and English law forms the
basis of the legal systems of many countries. It was
the historic centre of the British Empire. It was the
birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and was the first
country in the world to become industrialised. England
is home to the Royal Society, which laid the foundations
of modern experimental science. England was the world's
first parliamentary democracy and consequently
many constitutional, governmental and legal innovations
that had their origin in England have been widely adopted
by other nations.

island of Great Britain, plus offshore islands of which
the largest is the Isle of Wight. It is bordered to the
north by Scotland and to the west by Wales. It is closer
to continental Europe than any other part of Britain,
divided from France only by a 52 km (24 statute mile
or 21 nautical mile) sea gap.
of England consists of rolling hills, but it is more
mountainous in the north with a chain of low mountains,
the Pennines, dividing east and west. The dividing line
between terrain types is usually indicated by the Tees-Exe
line. There is also an area of flat, low-lying marshland
in the east, the Fens, much of which has been drained
for agricultural use.
list of England's largest cities is much debated because
in English the normal meaning of city is "a continuously
built-up urban area"; these are hard to define and
various other definitions are preferred by some people
to boost the ranking of their own city. For the official
definition of a UK (and therefore English) city, see
City status in the United Kingdom. However, by any definition
London is by far the largest urban area in England and
one of the largest and busiest cities in the world. Birmingham
is the second largest, both in terms of the city itself
and its urban conurbation. A number of other cities,
mainly in central and northern England, are of substantial
size and influence. These include: Manchester, Leeds,
Liverpool, Newcastle, Sheffield, Bristol, Coventry, Leicester,
Nottingham and Hull.

to the European mainland. The English/French border is
halfway along the tunnel.
largest natural harbour in England is at 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).
England has a temperate climate, with plentiful rainfall all year round,
though the seasons are quite variable in temperature. However,
temperatures rarely fall below -5 °C (23 °F) or rise above
30 °C (86 °F). The prevailing wind is from the southwest,
bringing mild and wet weather to England regularly from the Atlantic
Ocean. It is driest in the east and warmest in the south, which
is closest to the European mainland. Snowfall can occur in Winter
and early Spring, though it is not that common away from high ground.
highest temperature ever recorded in England is 38.5 °C
(101.3 °F) on August 10, 2003 at Brogdale, near Faversham,
in Kent. The lowest temperature ever recorded in England
is -26.1 °C (-15.0 °F) on January 10, 1982 at
Edgmond, near Newport, in Shropshire
