England is in north-west Europe and is in the southern part of Great Britain. It is an island country and also part of the United Kingdom (UK).
England is the largest country in Great Britain and the UK. It is sometimes, wrongly, used in reference to the whole United Kingdom, the entire island of Great Britain, or indeed the British Isles. This is not only incorrect but can cause offence to people from other parts of the UK.
Nearly 84% of the population of the UK lives in England, mainly in the major cities and metropolitan areas.
The landscape is determined mainly by the different types of rock underlying it. In the south, chalk has produced the gently rolling hills of the Downs, while hard granite is the basis for the mountains of the north and the high moorlands of Dartmoor and Exmoor in the south-west.
Much of the land in England is flat (low lying) - less than 1000m above sea level, forming meadowlands and pastures and less than 10 percent of the area is covered by woodlands. Farmers raise animals or grow crops in the fields. Read more about farming.
The landscape of England is more rugged in the north and the west. The highest elevations are in Cambria and the Lake District in the west. The highestpoint in England is Scafell Pike, 978m, part of the Cumbrian Mountains in North West England. The area of the Cumbrian Mountains is the most rugged in England and is more commonly known as the Lake District after the many lakes there.
The Pennines, a large chain of hills with moorland tops rising to between 600 and 900 metres, splits northern England into northwest and northeast sectors. They run down from the Scottish border to the river Trent about halfway down the country.
The Southwest is a long peninsular with bleak moorlands and rocky outcrop. The wide expanse of Salisbury Plain occupies most of the central part of southern England.
In the Southeast, a horseshoe-shaped ring of chalk downs surrounds the formerly wooded area of the Weald. The southeast corner, from Dover to Eastbourne, has dramatic chalk cliffs bordering the English Channel.
