The regions used here are fairly closely based on those used by the National Trust, English Heritage and the English tourist board. It would have been really nice if all three organisations had all agreed, but they didn't.
The tourist people didn't want Wiltshire to be in the South West (probably to make Stonehenge look closer to London) and weren't totally sure if Cumbria was part of the North West or an independent region of its very own.
English Heritage claim parts of Lincolnshire are really in Yorkshire; this is presumably a carry over from the creation of the Humberside local authority, which controled parts of Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, until it was disbanded.
Foreign parts are, surprisingly enough, anywhere outside the United Kingdom.
