Ipswich closely followed by Leicster
Really really shit.
Le val fourré is such a nice place...
it is pretty shitty though.
a "city" is cack though.
a series of roundabouts west of Slough. shudder.
I agree with all so far.
I wish to add- Middlesborough, i see no reedeming festures whatsoever. Its landmark is the most fundamentally pointless form of river crossing EVER.
Nottinghams preety bad at times too.
Coventry, Leicester.... is that they were really really really nice, once...
is there any other choice?
huge roads leading to the middle of nowhere, a decimated city centre that is devoid of any buildings
large sections that you would never consider going into day or night
general dilapidation all over the place
I love my birth town
It's a town, stupid!
But yes, it's a stain on an otherwise pretty Suffolk.
As if! We have more gun crime in one episode of the Shield than UK has had in the last decade.
when you're a gang member and a drug dealer...
Now that's racist !
to tell them they're racists ?
because its largely between gangs. Nottingham still only reaches the level of an average american city. Nottingham is seen to be so bad, because its the 3rd largest city in england, apparently. These figures forget the fact that Newcastle, Liverpool, and Birmingham all cheat by splitting themselves into smaller cities eg 'Gateshead' and 'wolverhampton'. Which is why nottingham seems so bad.
While it is a bit shitty, the centre of town is at least nice, theres plenty of parkland and trees, not too many underpasses/overpasses to get mugged in.
