England is divided into Ceremonial Counties for non-administrative purposes and into Administrative Regions, Unitary Authorities and wikipedia:Districts for administrative purposes.

Some ceremonial counties are also administrative counties covering the same area (Suffolk); some administrative counties cover only part of the ceremonial county (for example Essex) with other parts of the ceremonial county administered by a unitary authority (such as Southend-on-Sea in Essex). Some have no administrative functions (for example Berkshire) with all administrative functions delegated to constituent unitary authorities. Some counties are administered by a single unitary authority, for example Isle of Wight, Cornwall (minus the Scilly Isles) and Herefordshire. The borough of Stockton-on-Tees is unique in England in being divided between two ceremonial counties, with the part of the borough north of the River Tees being in Durham and the part south of the Tees being in North Yorkshire.

A list of these counties and how they relate to administrative areas can be found at English Counties.
