North West England is a constituency of the European Parliament. From the 2009 elections it elects 8 MEPs using the D'Hondt method of party-list proportional representation.


The constituency corresponds to the North West England region of the United Kingdom, comprising the counties of Cheshire, Cumbria, Greater Manchester, Lancashire and Merseyside.


Following the passing of the European Parliamentary Elections Act 1999, the North West of England forms one constituency from which candidates are elected using the D'Hondt method. In the election preceding that Act, MEPs were elected by the first-past-the-post method in single-member constituencies. The current constituency corresponds to the following former constituencies: Cheshire East, Cheshire West and Wirral, Cumbria and Lancashire North, Greater Manchester Central, Greater Manchester East, Greater Manchester West, Lancashire Central, Lancashire South, Merseyside East and Wigan, Merseyside West, and parts of Staffordshire West and Congleton.
