Well, nowhere I live (Mansfield) is on there, so I just spent 5 minutes looking for places in Bristol that appear in skins

I love it. The Parisian one really helped with planning my holiday and I've been looking forward to the launch of the UK one ever since I saw the street-view car in Norwich (you can just about see me here outside Caffé Nero hidden behind a street sign in the stripy polo-shirt!). I've used it to look around where I'm going to Uni already which was quite handy.

I don't know what people's fears about security are for, anywhere you can see on Street View can be seen in person and it's not as if the events that are being depicted didn't happen/

It was a smart car in mainland Europe but when I saw it, it was a Vauxhall Astra.

Ditto, I'm disappointed at how hideous Sheffield's Geog department is.

I thought the Arts Tower looked pretty hideous but I think my subject department is moving from there by September
