None. Only London is relevant.

Edinburgh, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool.


Maybe even Cardiff because of the Champions League final and world heavyweight title fights there

Another reason why I would say Manchester is because of the attacks that happened last year. Been all over the news around the world.

Manchester. We've given the world Oasis, The Smiths, The Stone Roses, Manchester United and Coronation Street. We had a major part to play in the industrial revolution and the politics of the UK. We had the worlds first inter city railway. The BBC and ITV are based here. Millions of people want to travel, work and study here.

Really the only city that compares is Liverpool because of The Beatles and Liverpool FC. Maybe Edinburgh has a case too.

But surely they thought they were simply just Unis? They knew they were cities too?

Never been anywhere where people didn't know the Beatles and thus know Liverpool.
