What twin town(s) / city(ies) does your hometown (or place you’re currently living or whatever) have?

Have you been to any of the twins? Reckon it’s a good comparison?

This in not a thread to talk about the Welsh answer to Trainspotting: Twin Town


'Twinned with...' - is your hometown twinned with anywhere?

Nijmegen

Not been to any of those I don’t think. I am aware that Albany exists though.

Bridgend

Langenau sounds like a Welsh place, just give it a double L at the front there. Not been to those places.

My contributions to this thread are disappointing, maybe you can do better.

Brighton doesn’t have one. Looks like Hove is twinned with some suburb of Paris though, which sounds about right :wink:

Good bunch of twins there.

Also, Worthing has FOUR twin towns in Germany. What’s that all about? (apart from a big pool of towns for school exchange trips)

#18

Is that really Winchester’s soubriquet? Makes sense, but how grandiose do you want to be, Winch?


#19

Sounds about right for Winch, bunch of snobby pricks


#20

I’m genuinely really surprised that my hometown has any, apparently Leven is twinned with Holzminden in Germany and Bruges in France.

Haven’t been to either. Didn’t even know that there was a Bruges in France.
