Definitely Port Talbot. Number one cause of death - people's souls breaking
Far, Far, worse.
I used to live in slough and people went to maidenhead out of a desir to 'go somewhere nice'.
that's my ENDZ boi
let's make no bones about it, it's rancid.
the so-called 'golden mile' is nothing more than a minefield of dog shit, used condoms and empty cans of Special Brew. Horrendous.
I've never been to Milton Keynes but every time I've passed through it on the train it's looked like the dullest place on earth.
i was actually born there too!
dear lord, it was nice, y'know, but also a bit sad
in Central London.
You get some terrible examples of humanity in there
Or Rainbow Sports Bar?
It's a nightclub in quite a narrow street full of children and a floor of glass. Would that fit either of those?
It hasn't got fancy flooring.
was full of children, not the street.
I don't think it was that narrow. Just had very tall buildings either side.
It's easy to forget, you know. The tallest building I ever see now is two storeys. One of these days you should remember what it's like in the real world.
I do remember, I basically live in a beautiful green suburb with nary a skyscraper in sight.
If you're really drunk and try and forget exactly what you're doing with your life, and concentrate on the Ice Hockey on the small screens.
is nice though
But the rest of it? I hope it burns to the ground, apart from my Dad.
but lived until i was 18 in Hatfield. What a fucking hovel. Made me want to die.
Mind you, a little bit of old hatfield is nice, but even then, its spoiled by having the jobcentre down there and people hanging around outside wearing tracksuits.
Bedford Bus Station
that place depresses me. Last time I was there, some kids set fire to a bin.
My girlfriend went to the Ladies' there once and there was some graffiti on the wall saying something along the lines of
'My baby died in childbirth, I hope yours does too.'
I'm from Biggleswade!
the real answer is Portsmouth
To me anyway.
that flaming tower
or possibly Beeston
or possibly Bradford
is the curry
"The Venue" as a young gent?
I saw Ash there, it was actually pretty good. Mustard Plug too, they were fun. I used to get the train from Redditch every day, so I went past the Venue (worst name ever) every day.
I NEVER had the balls to go in the pub at the train station entrance though.
was fun. I remember a ska-band playing, it may have been Jesse James, and a load of asian gangsters stormed in turned the lights on and beat someone up.
It was also the first place i got served beer, at the tender age of 14. Halycon days indeed.
I think Beamish is quite a nice little place and the museum is rad.
Or do you mean that Stanley isn’t so bad because of Beamish? That’s a bit like saying that Sunderland is nice because it’s near Newcastle...
I went to Uni there, gets a bit boring after a while, but lets face it, when both Plymouth and Torquay are nearby, it puts things into perspective.
ULLS MINT N IF YER COME ERE ILL BATTER YER FUCKIN BACK DOOR IN DICK ED
while I was there some 'delightful' kids said if my friend didn't go and buy them some cigarettes, they'd break my leg. :'''(
hulls a nice place!
try living there, its hell
North Dakota or Tunbridge Wells.
It was rubbish. I am never going there again if I can help it.
its some of the suburbs you've gotta worry about
Camden's a soft target
apart from all the racism.
but St Austell is hideous. They've knocked half of it down, and taking quite a long time building the shopping centre to replace it. Not sure what's worse really, old St Austell, or a big shiny shopping centre...
I'm having a whale of a time.
just to say Redruth.
my ma is from Redruth and my gran is from Camborne, i lived in Hatfield and Exeter. Its like im connected to all the worst places in the country.
Driving past PT at night is wonderful because it reminds of the intro screen to Shadowrun on the SNES; going to PT in the day or night is a deadly mistake.
The Townhill area in Swansea is a grim experience.
How did I forget these places?
On what planet is that anywhere near the worst place anywhere?!
in the grand scheme of things. I mean there are far worse places that exist, like Luton, Swindon or Slough. Besides Derby's got an ok(ish) live music scene, quite a few decent clubs and it's a friendly enough place. Oh and it's my home.
but i've seen worse.
Lincoln was the most backward inbred place I'd ever been, until I went to Spalding. What the fuck is going on with that part of the country?
I was a bit harsh with Derby - great music scene, admittedly, and some nice parts.
Nottingham and Clapham - self-explanatory.
Mansfield's the darkest place I've been in the UK.
I lived in Blackwater and Farnbrough, and they are both holes.
The view from the beach looking towards to the steel works makes for some brilliant photographs. Oh and at night the whole of the steel works looks almost ethereal and otherwordly in the way it's lit up. Here's a fun Port Talbot fact for you; Ridley Scott got his inspiration for the nightmarish cityscape of Bladerunner from Port Talbot steelworks, true fact. Oh and the rest of the town isn't that bad in a workaday kind of way.
admittedly i have only been to the railway station.
this HAS to be truw
A teasmaid, or something.
hell on earth.
I'm not having that.
quite. it put me off the whole of san francisco to be honest :(
Near Nob Hill...
really? where's worse?!
for one, although it's a bit further out. I would also say south of Market around 5th and 6th was always much scarier especially at night.
my friend went there to find out about why fuck people were living in a such a dangerously polluted area. she actually said it was the most depressing place she'd ever been.
my experience of tenderloin was awful...me and friends got threatened with a gun :'(. my hotel was at the south of market st... the whole area got so scary at night...so many weirdos its unreal.
I hope you enjoyed it overall though
What a bag of wank place that was
You've got Golden Gate Park at the end, some good bars and Amoeba records.
it attracts scummy people but it's not that bad and anywhere off Haight Street tends to be really nice. Quite similar to Camden in this regard.
given it's about 2 minutes from civic center.
how does make a difference?
that marks the scariest places?
I never found it too bad because you could walk a block and it would get markedly better.
I got driven through it, because my ex was trying to prove a point.
I ran the line there once.
A twelve year old boy threw a brick at me. Whilst I was running the line.
I also nominate Redcar. A lot of the NE unfairly gets a bad press, Middlesbrough particularly, but Redcar is actually horrible.
seemed nice when i was there.
corby yeah, awful. got elbowed in the face 3 times in a 5-a-side tournament years back, it's what you get for marking a guy twice your size out of the game, shithole of a town.
MK is a dull identi-kit town, but Blackpool is full of fat slags wearing fairy wings showing too much leg/belly/upper arm, squarking in the streets as they're abused by rat-faced cunts wearing t-shirts with '*surname*ey' and a number on the back.
Where does anyone go for a decent night out in there? Liverpool? Manchester?
What, no one?!?1
horrible place, also:
You hate it, but you can't stop going back for more.
it was that bad, I'm ashamed to have lived there. It was five miles from farnborough. I can barely say that.
The first time was bad.
The second time was worse.
Between Burnley, Withernsea and my ex's parents for dinner
to get stones and bottles threw at you in the middle of a packed street in a city centre at midday while minding your own business.
then I visited Dundee.....
I thought by moving from EK, I'd be getting away from that kind of rubbish.
if it makes you feel better
where the elderly go to die.
Near Ebbw Vale. There was an old woman sleeping in a rocking chair in the laundrette. Scary, bleak place. Quite a lot of the valley towns are bleak.
Its pronounced 'quim', isnt it?
Valley towns that I've been to are fucking bleak and scary places where being a 'roider is considered a positive lifestyle choice.
Ok, I'm being a bit harsh there but they are pretty bleak and grim places.
apart from the summer migrations of Brummies and Welsh people it's actually quite alright.
Quiet, average age of inhabitants 70+, nature reserves, lagoons, horse-riding along the beach and a view of Hinkly Point powerstation across the mud-flats. What more could you want?
I wouldn't ever, ever, ever move back.
For sheer skankiness you want to try Bridgwater or Chatham.
as it is a shit hole!! and glad to have found someone in agreeement with me! it is horrid!
(I've grown to accept my fate but I can see why you said it.)
or a really run down Lithuanian hotel that looked like dirty grey cement cube from the outside and a nightmare of over busy 70s brown decor inside.
It stank faintly of bad milk as well.
London still probably wins though.
(I've lived here all my life. Shall be breaking away soon though.)
(really is grim) and Sheffield. I feared for my life!
on the way back from ATP. The situation of not being able to leave for a couple of hours probably made it worse but it seemed like an awful place.
by the absolutely heinous Cunt-Duffles who staff the place
although i was there to see one of the best gigs ive ever seen. (bjork, empress ballroom)
seriously. And I had to work there for two months.
actual hell on earth
stayed there for a month last summer, constant sirens, fighting, signs round the back of our flat saying that undercover police operations were in progress (surely that gives the game away a little?). The walk from the station to the front door was quite frightening.
Thanks team x
I was about to post Port Talbot
