Government Office Regions are used for administrative purposes. (Nations, rather than regions, in the cases of Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland)

There is also a Wikipedia article

Subject: [Talk-GB] Definitions of regions

Not strictly an OSM question but people here might be able to help me.
I have a list of places with outwards postcodes (eg N1). 
I would like to group them into regions - London, North East, Midlands.

Does anyone know a suitable list of regions to use. I suspect the
regions and postcode boundaries don't exactly align but that doesnt
bother me for the purposes I need.

Thanks
Andrew
