Describing the location of a city



Describing location

  • ITT – What information should we include when describing the location of a city? Try to think of three pieces of information that you could include when describing the location of a city.

  • PW – Share your ideas

  • Using your shared ideas write a description of the location of Hull. You can use an Atlas to help.





Site and Situation

  • Site – the reason why the place was chosen for a city.

  • Example – Hull was chosen for a site for a settlement because it is a near a river. Therefore, fishing developed and jobs were available for people.

  • Situation – where a place is in relation to other places.

  • Example – Hull is located 40kms to the east of York.

  • Online Activity



Example 1 – The location of London

  • London is situated in the south east of England. It is located on the River Thames. London is situated 75km south east of Oxford. The M25 runs around London. A number of other motorways lead to London. These include the M1, M11 and M23.

  • London is sited here because the land is flat and easy to build on. Being located on a river London developed as a port. This created many jobs so people moved to the area.
