List of twin towns and sister cities in the United Kingdom facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

This is a list of places in the United Kingdom having standing links to local communities in other countries. In most cases, the association, especially when formalised by local government, is known as "town twinning" (though other terms, such as "partner towns" or "sister cities" are sometimes used instead), and while most of the places included are towns, the list also comprises villages, cities, districts, counties, etc. with similar links.

The list is arranged by constituent country; and then by the ceremonial counties of England, the counties of Northern Ireland, the council areas of Scotland, and the principal areas of Wales. For other countries' lists see lists of twin towns and sister cities.
