'''Northern England''', also known as the '''North of England''', '''the North''' or the '''North Country''', is a cultural region of England. It is not an official government region (Regions of England), but rather an informal amalgamation of counties (counties of England). It extends roughly from the River Trent to the south, Retrieved on 23 February 2009. to Scotland in the north.

Northern England includes three Euro constituencies (Regions of England): the North East (North East England), North West (North West England) and Yorkshire and the Humber. These have a combined population of around 14.5 million and an area of 37,331 km 2 (14,414 sq mi).

During antiquity most of the area was part of ''Brigantia''—homeland of the Brigantes and the largest Brythonic (Britons (historical)) kingdom of Great Britain. After the Roman conquest of Britain the city of York became capital of the area, called Britannia Inferior then Britannia Secunda. In Sub-Roman Britain new Brythonic kingdoms of the ''Hen Ogledd'' ("Old North") emerged. The Angle (Angles) settlers created Bernicia and Deira from which came Northumbria (Kingdom of Northumbria) and a Golden Age (Northumbria's Golden Age) in cultural, scholarly and monastic activity, centred on Lindisfarne and aided by Irish monks. Retrieved on 23 February 2009. Norse (Norsemen) and Gaelic (Norse Gael) Viking raiders gained control of much of the area, creating the Danelaw. During this time there were close relations with Mann and the Isles (Kingdom of Mann and the Isles), Dublin (Kingdom of Dublin) and Norway. Northumbria was unified with the rest of England under Eadred (Eadred of England) around 952.

After the Norman conquest (Norman conquest of England) in 1066, the Harrying of the North brought destruction, but afterwards many towns were built and founded. A Council of the North was in place during the Late Middle Ages until the Commonwealth (Commonwealth of England) after the Civil War (English Civil War). The area experienced Anglo–Scottish border fighting until the unification of Britain (History of the formation of the United Kingdom) under the Stuarts (House of Stuart).
