Towns of the United Kingdom

In England, Wales and Northern Ireland, a town is any settlement which has received a charter of incorporation, more commonly known as a town charter, approved by the monarch. In Scotland, the equivalent is known as a burgh, pronounced burra. There are two types of burgh: royal burghs and burghs of barony.

The Channel Islands and the Isle of Man are not part of the United Kingdom, but are included here for convenience.
