Most of the world understand 'Cities' as large conglomerations of people and area under one name, the UK idea of a city as having to have a Cathedral is now just an old fashioned idea.

Shouldn't this one feature York? 209,893 city pop, urban less than that, according to Wikipedia, for whatever reason (153,717).

Apparently the source does consider Portsmouth and Bradford as part of Southampton and Leeds. It is a pity it does not credit, which smaller cities each urban area consists.

On the other hand I am missing here York and Gloucester.
