What is England's largest city?
Leeds is regarded as the third largest city by population (after London and Birmingham) but because of the difficulties in defining where a city area ceases and an urban area starts Manchester (The Greater Manchester Urban area) is also acknowledged as the third largest (after London and the West Midlands Urban area).
The state capital city is not always the largest in state. New York State's largest city is New York City and its capital city is Albany, the 6th largest city in the state. California's largest city is Los Angeles and its capital city is Sacramento, the 6th largest city in the state. Texas' largest city is Houston and its capital city is Austin, the 4th largest city in the state.
