    Yeah the thread title is wrong basically The list is just generalising the whole of the UK it doesn't just include all nice places it includes a mixture of different places It just has the nicest places at the top of the list and the worst places at the bottom

    I haven't been to Northern Ireland but yeah it would be right at the bottom of the list due to the IRA and terrorists attacks and the fact that southern Irish people hate Northern Ireland people so it doesn't really seem like a nice place to live

    Neither are a hell of a lot of other places on your list, yet you're calling them posh.


    Do you know what posh means?

    Seconds thoughts I would put Shrewsbury a bit higher up the list maybe in front of the East Midlands and Devon and Cornwall behind the Cotswolds?
    Cornwall?! Have you ever been to cornwall?! My mum and her family are from Cornwall, my dad lived there from the age of 7.

    It's an absolute shitehole - there are barely any jobs (and certainly not in any professional sectors), the towns are, for the most part, completely run down and the ones that aren't are few and very far between. It's nice for a holiday, but on the list of the 'poshest' and 'nicest' parts of the UK? Absolutely not.

    I've heard that the tranquil market town of Croydon and the neighbouring village of Thornton Heath are remarkably picturesque and safe places to reside in.

    now moving right up north into Scotland and Lothian Edinburgh and finally moving south into northern England for example Newcastle Lancashire Preston and Lancaster then Leeds Sheffield Manchester North and South Yorkshire then east towards Hull and Grimsby and then back right up north into general Scotland and finally leaving England Scotland and Wales behind to go to Northern Ireland.
    So why list Scotland twice?

    And you've listed every place that's within the M25 as more posh than places like the Cotswolds... You might want to rethink, well, everything.

    And you know you can rename the thread so you can explain yourself better?

    I haven't been to Cornwall myself no the furthest west ive been is to Somerset which then is by the sounds of it the nicest The most western counties before everything goes to hell I just thought Devon and Cornwall would have lots of posh old people sipping tea in tearooms eating clotted cream pastries

    Most places within the M25 are more expensive than the Cotswolds well that is if you want to purchase the house if you're talking about landscape quality then obviously the Cotswolds is so much nicer I've listed Scotland twice because Edinburgh is nicer than the rest of Scotland and it is therefore placed further up the list than the rest of Scotland just like York is an exception to northern England

    So you're basing this solely on price? You are aware that that means nothing about whether somewhere is nice or posh?


    This list could better be described as "my entirely subjective and in no way accurate list of places close to London, because that's obviously the centre of the universe".

    House prices do influence part of my overall decision of where place should be on my list and yeah this list is subjective I thought I Kinder made that clear in the original post when I said this is by no means accurate or comprehensive

    That was not clear before you edited it. It is not clear after you edited it. It just sounds like you don't have a clue.

    And it still reads (though I use that word loosely) as though you simply believe London is the centre of the universe and nowhere else matters.


    You are perfectly correct when you say it's not accurate, however.

    London Central is a **** hole, i guess once you grow up there, it loses its sparks. There council estates, conor shops, and it just isnt anything great to look at. The nice ares to live in, sometimes you can walk past the areas and there literally **** on the floor, I guess the bin men dont come there often since there always overfilled bags and bins tipped over somehow, the shops are closed down, since no one is buying from them and less people live in roher/nicer areas of london. Honestly london isnt that beautiful, great place to live but not beautiful if you've lived there your whole life. There are a few places that offset it/ go against the trend but overall its pretty ugly, i really dont understand why tourist go into central london, when it aint much too look at ( apart from the sights ofc )
    You must be from Croydon.

    I assure you, most of Central London is quite amazing. I live there, go to school there and spend my leisure time there -- have so in my entire 18 years of existence. Every city will have its own little pit of depression and poverty, but even then you'll find pockets of culture and happiness.

    The only thing I don't like about London, especially central, is the house pricing. Going towards Fulham, Chelsea and Westminster you won't have a chance to afford the housing unless you've built wealth across a large span of years. But damn, if you do, it feels as if an entire world's worth of enjoyment and variety awaits you.
