    Well TBH - just because you enjoy somewhere does that mean it's not a ****hole? Nottingham is the pits, but I had a great weekend there with the missus back in 05

    Id live in Nottingham ahead of Leics and Derby and live in both before Bradford

    I include Oxford as an outside bet as it has a fantastic reputation based mainly on the University but the town itself if **** and has all sorts of problems

    Never spent much time in Derby. Was in Leicester recently, pretty much the same as Nott'm

    What really got me in Nottingham was that I saw a sign saying, "This pub closes at 8PM due to Police Orders"

    Can't believe we've got this far without mention of Coventry. It's an absolute ****ing **** hole. Clear winner.

    Middlesboro down there too.

    You're right though, at this rate, I don't think there will be any places left in England for them to actually like.

    Second Blackpool, retract my nomination for Moss Side as I think cpr is right (can't believe I'm saying that)

    Shame the title says "England" as it means I can't nominate Wrexham
