Well I do think that Latin America is for the most part western, or at least an extension of the western world, however the ops question is very hard to answer since there aren’t really any Anglo cultures outside of the western world/commonwealth, so instead I was focusing my search on places that were not part of the commonwealth/ former British empire or EU, and in that case Chile is probably the best answer.

The British empire wasn't the be all, did you forget about the Spanish? Which would lead us to Chile. Which is western as international slave trade and genocide as the British and French.

Off the top of my head these are things that are British but not necessarily Western -

Tea culture
Pub culture
Drinking culture that favor strong liquor
Cricket
Sense of humor

I can see a small island nation importing these out of admiration, but more of these can't be easily transferred without taking the people too.

I'm only responding to the Op's question, and the op was emphasizing Anglo/northern culture, as opposed to the southern/Mediterranean culture that countries such as Spain belong too.

"Are there any countries, regions or cities outside of the West and former British Empire with a strong anglo-saxon or Northern European culture? If so, where?"

Also many people view Latin America to be a bit separate from the west since they have a lot of the indigenous cultures infused into them.
