Worst five cities/places you’ve been to


#261

My wife’s gran lived in Paulsgrove and her sister lives in Cosham! Her parents are in Cowplain, which is not so much bad as beige. I love our trips to the in-laws.


#262

I lived in Portchester for the first 13 years (nearly) of my life. Have fond memories, but going back a few years ago and staying in Cosham was a bit of a reality check!


#263

Yeah, Cosham is definitely on THE LIST. Do you remember what the shopping centre in Fareham used to be like, with the beige and red floor tiles? It’s still a popular setting for my nightmares!


#264

The Vatican? San Marino?


#265

Not sure about the mentions of poverty in a lot of these responses


#266

Oh, bad luck. The answer was Spain.


#267

quite snobby this thread really


#268

Yeah. It’s all a bit ‘dodgy pubs’ for me.


#269

I think with Luton, the impression that I get has been clouded by this guy.


#270

Camped in Wisbech three years ago when a friend’s band were producing their album! Despite the fact to walk into town you have to go straight past the dog food factory and its smell, it didn’t seem too bad.

Though there’s a deeply unsettling vibe about that part of East Anglia - the straight flat roads and endless turnip fields remind me of General Zod’s introduction in Superman II


#271

I tend to avoid anywhere described as a mafia capital. So Naples, Palermo, Moscow, Belgrade, etc.

Thought Prague was shit when I went. A bridge and a load of pubs full of English lad pissheads. Awful atmosphere.


#272

Although Palermo looks amazing tbf.


#273

I have found it’s impossible to buy a non-double battered sausage supper. Even what’s called a “battered sausage single” is actually just two battered sausages.


#274

annoying when people broadly assume Norfolk is all like that but then I go there and go “well fair enough”


#275

This pub there has got me feeling all Emily Thornberry :joy:


#276

Lincolnshire has a great arts scene. Especially Cubism.


#277

would be a great band name


#278

Norwich is nice having lived there for a bit. Its getting a little too trendy now. But a very nice green city with loads or cracking pubs and lovely kept churches. Worked in Ipswich and man I hated that place. Just really boring.


#279

Was going to make a “Things To Do In Ipswich When You’re Dead” joke but that film is already in the pipeline thanks to Ed Sheeran


#280

I know, I grew up there and visited at the weekend. Though I agree with you to some extent, Norwich will never be trendy to me
