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.

  1. You have a spelling error with ‘Berkshire’ in the CSV version. Thank you for creating it.

  2. I’ll be cold in the ground before I recognise Bath & Somerset as a county, it’s just Somerset.

  3. Dorset is missing from the CSV list, and it also shows ‘Powy’ rather than ‘Powys’.

  4. Hi James,
    The following two county names have an extra dot “.” at the end.

    – “Neath Port Talbot.” rather than “Neath Port Talbot”
    – “Newport.” rather than “Newport”

    Thank you for the list.

  5. Bath and North East Somerset is a unitary authority, not a county. It’s in the county of Somerset.

  6. Great list and very helpful, but you probably don’t need Ayrshire in the list, as you already have North Ayrshire, South Ayrshire and East Ayrshire. Similarly, do you need Dunbartonshire, given you’ve got East and West Dunbartonshire? Also, shouldn’t it be County Down, rather than just Down and Scottish Borders, rather than just Borders?

    Sorry if this all sounds terribly pedantic. I’m trying to correct the list of counties for a website checkout form and hadn’t realised how fraught the whole notion of UK counties was, what with registration counties, historic counties, administrative counties, county constituencies, etc. etc. Your list has been a big help. Thanks
