    Manchester coz i has a bit of everything to do. Also the nightlife and music life are amazing.

    Aside from that around the Cornwall area is VERY nice.

    Derbyshire - without a doubt - any part of it from Dovedale to the Peak District. The whole county of Derbyshire is marvellous, and even though I live there no more I love going back up there -

    However, the seaside is my favourite sort of place, absolutely love the coast shame I hardly ever get to go there - So my favourite coastal place is a toss up between Mablethorpe, Lincs and Bournemouth, Hants

    I live in the Midlands near an area calles Earlswood. Its really nice and very quite (alot of countryside).

    To be honest I would love to purchase a house up there because its close-ish to the city centre.

    I am not a fan of beaches and stuff. As long as there is country side, lots of walking space and a quite area thats fine for me.

    The houses are probably out of my price range in Earlswood though. I heard a few stars live up there.

    I'm torn between the Gower Peninsula, Swansea (specifically Oxwich bay), or the Malvern Hills, bordering Herefordshire and Worcestershire. Both for there fantastic views, tranquility (not all the time, but if you go on the right days), and ability for just break away from the rest of world and simply relax the day away.

    Liverpool. Its got everything and i live here lol
    No really it has culture, Europes biggest shopping centres, major attractions, beautiful mersey river, having the mTV awards here this year...it has loads i could go on and on...
    You don't even have the country's largest shopping centre! (which is Gateshead's MetroCentre, also, until recently, the largest shopping centre in Europe. It still is the largest in the European Union last I checked).

    Northumberland. Fantasitc countryside (one of the few tranquil areas of England), fantastic coastline, more castles than anywhere else in the country, lots of heritigage and history, picteresque market towns which offer some of the finest standards of living in the country).

    If city life was still your thing there's Newcastle (the real capital of culture 2008 ) on your doorstep. Great shopping, theatre, art and architecture.

    But I expect Northumberland to get ignored, as always.

    Edit: - Liverpool's largest shopping centre isn't even in the top three in the UK

    Its city centre is a beautiful world heritage site, I'll give you that
