Geography - Settlements
What are settlements?
Settlements are places where people live and sometimes work.
They can be small or large depending on how many people live there and how many facilities there are.
Facilities are places where certain things happen, for example, schools for education, parks for playing or shops for selling things.
Types of settlement
In the UK however, some cities may be small. This is because some settlements have a cathedral and this makes them a city. For example, St Davids in Wales and the City of London in England.
Some settlements also have a special use, or function. For example:
