This is a list of the tallest buildings by United Kingdom settlement. The article includes all cities and towns with a population over 100,000. This list is based on criteria set out by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat which excludes structures such as telecommunication towers and church spires from being labelled as a 'skyscraper or tall building'. The tallest building in the United Kingdom in a settlement with fewer than 100,000 inhabitants is The Triad in Bootle, Merseyside at 88.7 metres (291 ft).[1]
