Verwaltungsbezirke Englands seit 2021

Die Verwaltungsgliederung Englands ist letztmals 2020 in einigen Landesteilen reformiert worden. England gliedert sich derzeit in neun Regionen, darunter Greater London. Mit Ausnahme von London sind deren kommunale Einheiten seit 2021 auf drei verschiedene Arten gegliedert:

Die Boroughs, Districts und Unitary Authorities können unterschiedliche Zusatztitel haben, die sie entweder aus historischer Zeit führen oder auch in jüngerer Zeit (z. B. wegen ihrer Größe) erhalten haben. Man unterscheidet hierbei zwischen Cities, Boroughs, Metropolitan Boroughs und London Boroughs.

Neben der administrativen Verwaltungsgliederung, deren Ebenen echte politische Kompetenzen besitzen, besteht zudem noch eine rein historisch-symbolische Gliederung, die u. a. umfasst:
