This is a list of cities in the United Kingdom, as of 2010. The column headed Cathedral shows the applicable cathedrals that were the grounds for the granting of city status in the case of cities recognised prior to 1888, i.e. cathedrals of the Church of England (including cathedrals that are now part of the Church in Wales) or pre-Reformation cathedrals in the Church of Scotland. Certain cities also have Roman Catholic cathedrals, but these are not listed. As from 1888, the presence of a cathedral ceased to be a relevant factor in granting city status and all entries after this date are, therefore, marked not applicable. Cities which have acquired cathedrals since 1888 are Birmingham, Bradford, Derby, Leicester, Newport, Portsmouth and Sheffield, while Llandaff Cathedral was included within the boundaries of the city of Cardiff in 1922. In Ireland, possession of a diocesan cathedral has never (except in the anomalous case of Armagh) been sufficient to attain city status.

There are currently a total of 66 official cities in the United Kingdom (50 in England, 5 in Northern Ireland, 6 in Scotland and 5 in Wales)

<!--DO NOT ADD ROMAN CATHOLIC CATHEDRALS OR CofE, CinW CATHEDRALS IN CITIES GRANTED STATUS AFTER 1888. DO NOT ADD Church of Ireland cathedrals (see History section above). -->
