that may be true, but you neglect to say where the survey was done?

manchester, by any chance? by the regional 'news', who always ignore news that makes their region look bad?
It was done in every region, by MORI. So quite reputable.

Glasgow (my parents say this is lovely)
oooh yes, i love glasgow- i found out i can get married in the cathedral (can't quite remember why, but my mum was well annoyed when she found out cos my dad had never told her). i think glasgow is an amazing city (and i'm only slightly biased as my entire family is from there)

"When, without prompting, people are asked which they consider to be England's 'first' city, more than four in five (85%) name London. When asked which they consider England's 'second' city, a third (34%) name Manchester.

Birmingham follows Manchester with three in 10 people (29%) ranking it in second place. Liverpool was also in the picture, with one in 20 people (four percent) naming it as England's second city, and one in 10 (10%) naming it as England's 'third' city. "
and?

I just don't like it...some places just grate on you and I get that with Pompey (and Durham and Salisbury). I have to say some of the people I've met from Portsmouth are the nicest people in the world...I just know I wouldn't be happy living there.

fish, i'm studying at the moment in Liverpool..

Edinburgh is quite a city, but it's in Scotland...very beatiful.

Birmingham? I don't think it is a good city to leave in.. ya, it's big.. but it's not well situated.. it's a big industrial polluted city...

Not true anymore =P It's officially Manchester whether you're arguing population-wise or as a consensus of the population.
really? population wise? i thought birmingham was like half a million bigger or something?

edit-must learn to read following posts.

to be honest nowhere in england compares to london, i quite like birmingham but nottingham is nicer and has suprisingly more choice for shopping, clearly the most important factor haven't been to manchester but didn't like newcastle particularly, york is very pretty but boring and liverpool is just..meh

j'adore london
