This chapter examines the demographic patterns in Great Britain and explores what attracts and binds people to the nation's larger cities and their inner areas. It investigates the characteristics of people moving from, to, and within Britain's main conurbations, and identifies the factors influencing people's migration decisions. The findings indicate that while some of the larger cities have arrested the worst losses of the past twenty years, they are still losing ground to smaller places lower down the urban hierarchy.

Keywords:   demographic patterns, Great Britain, cities, migration, inner areas
