    Redditch, Worcestershire

    Pro's:
    It's only 40 minutes train ride to Birmingham town centre.
    Last year we got a cinema (yaaay)
    Shops in the Kingfisher centre are ok.
    In the town centre there's a weatherspoons, bar 98, chicago rock cafe, fever and fuse pubs/clubs wise, so it is possible to have a good night out.

    Con's:
    There actually isn't an awfull lot to do when you're living there. The place just seems boring.
    Lots of chavs. Especially in fuse.

    Lincoln, England

    Pros

    -a very pretty city
    -you can get to know a lot of people very very quickly and everyone knows everyone
    -If you ever wanted to see a proper farmer/hunter/shooter stereotype then this is the county for you, the food and drink fair is incredibly amusing for this reason...(flat caps, tweed jackets, checked shirts, plus 4's etc)
    -We get amazing sunsets

    Cons
    -people can be very backward, particularly in the villages there is a huge amount of racism and homophobia, jokes about these things are incredibly common
    -everyone new you meet is ALWAYS a friend of a friend
    -Not really a great deal to do anywhere but the city itself
    -It's very um...flat

    Newry, Northern Ireland. (I don't actually live in the city itself; I live in a neighbouring Village.)

    Pros:
    Well, it has two shopping Centres. Both are quite good, I guess.
    There's a Film Club. Not many people attend, though.
    They have the best Chippy in the County - China Cusine.
    Sorry, I can't think of anymore.

    Cons:
    Was voted the Worst City in Northern Ireland.
    A long history of violence.
    Everything is very expensive.
    Not a very attractive City.
    Other than the two Shopping Centres, there are very few good shops.

    Birmingham is only second in terms of population only.
    Everything else, like politics,media, economy, business, nightlife, culture etc... Manchester is the second city. Manchester is always reported as being the second city in media, internationally as well as nationally.

    Manchester was actually going to get a beach, there was a plan and it was all approved. And then because of the recession, it got cancelled.
