How many UK cities have you been to?

Post by Jennifer Steadman » Sat Jan 16, 2016 6:21 pm

List them and tally them out of 68. Here is a list:

England: Bath, Birmingham, Bradford, Brighton, Bristol, Cambridge, Canterbury, Carlisle, Chelmsford, Chester, Chichester, Coventry, Derby, Durham, Ely, Exeter, Gloucester, Hereford, Hull, Lancaster, Leeds, Leicester, Lichfield, Lincoln, Liverpool, London*, Manchester, Newcastle, Norwich, Nottingham, Oxford, Peterborough, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Preston, Ripon, Salford, Salisbury, Sheffield, Southampton, St Albans, Stoke-on-Trent, Sunderland, Truro, Wakefield, Wells, Winchester, Wolverhampton, Worcester, York (50)

Scotland: Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Perth, Stirling (7)

Wales: Bangor, Cardiff, Newport, St Asaph, St Davids, Swansea (6)

NI: Armagh, Belfast, Derry, Lisburn, Newry (5)


I'm on 26 - Bath, Brighton, Bristol, Canterbury, Chester, Coventry, Exeter, Leeds, Lincoln, London, Manchester, Norwich, Nottingham, Oxford, Plymouth, Salford, Salisbury (I think), Southampton, St Albans, Truro, Wakefield, Winchester, York (23/50 in England), and then Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast from the others. About half of these visits are directly or indirectly related to Countdown. If I had money and a car I'd like to spend a few weeks doing a road trip around the UK and visiting every city for at least 2 hours.

20/68.

England: Bath, Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Coventry, Exeter, Leicester, London, Manchester, Nottingham, Oxford, Portsmouth, Salford, Southampton, St Albans, York.

Scotland: Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Stirling.

It's possible I've been to Truro. Loads of my childhood holidays were in Cornwall so it's likely I went there at some point but don't remember any details. I've also travelled through Plymouth, Stoke-on-Trent and Wolverhampton, but I don't think I ever got out of a vehicle at any of them.

And although I've attended COLIN every year since 2012, I've never bothered to go to Lincoln.

Scotland: Edinburgh

There are a few more that I may have been to (Coventry, Derby, Hull, Sheffield and Wolverhampton) but can't say with any certainty. I'm not sure if passing through them on a train counts.

That's really hard. I'll go through it properly later but I might have been to several and not remembered. Probably even harder would be counties.

No, definitely not. I'm also inclined to not include train station changes here either (I didn't include Peterborough in my list) because whereas foreign airports/service stations etc do give you a little bit of insight into their respective countries, I don't believe that the vast majority of train stations give any insight into their cities.

Why would an airport or service station be any better at representing its city than a train station?

Edit: oh, I see, the difference is between country and city. So what if you changed planes in a UK city?

Yeah, I'm a militant logger of travels but I'd struggle with counties - erm...

Kent, Surrey, East Sussex, West Sussex, Hampshire, Dover, Dorset, Somerset, Cornwall, Bristol, Essex ( :| ), Suffolk, Norwich, Oxfordshire, Greater London, West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Hertfordshire, Northamptonshire, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Nottinghamshire, Cheshire, Shropshire, Warwickshire, Greater Manchester, Bedfordshire. Think that's it.

That would count. Although I would be a bit stroppy about someone trying to pretend Luton and Stansted airports count as London (Heathrow and City definitely count. Gatwick doesn't really count but I think it's the second biggest airport so I'd let it slide).

Someone will have changed planes at London Oxford Airport and use that to tick two cities off the list.

Do cities have properly defined borders? Presumably they do, but will people be aware of them? It won't be as clear to people as would countries. Also, I don't think the name of an airport is of any relevance, any more than if there was a shop that called itself the London shop and was nowhere near London. It's where you are - not what the establishment you're in calls itself.

That's a neat 30, and makes me feel a tiny bit better about having sod all to contribute to the 'countries' thread other than 'UK and jack shit else'.

Absolutely fine. My visit to St Albans consisted of walking a few hundred metres out of the station, into the CoStAl venue, getting quite inebriated for a few hours, and then leaving to go and see Queen TayTay in London.

I can stretch to 57. All except Bradford, Durham, Ely, Hull, Peterborough, Ripon, Sunderland, Bangor, St Asaph, Armagh and Lisburn. I've probably given more priority to exploring these islands as compared to the rest of the world than most do, so it may not be entirely and age thing. Quite a few have been picked up whilst cycle touring and I should get a few more like that this year.

That sounds excellent. If I had that as an objective I'd probably want to get a photograph beside one of the notable landmarks in each city, which would mean starting again.

Had to think about this a bit but I think this is right:

England: Bath, Birmingham, Bradford, Bristol, Cambridge, Chelmsford, Chester, Durham, Hull, Leeds, Lincoln, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Peterborough, Portsmouth, Ripon, Salford, Sheffield, Southampton, Sunderland, Wells, York

Scotland: Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth, Stirling.

I've been to Wales a few times but never near any of the cities and have never been to Northern Ireland, so in total 30, which is a bit rubbish really.

Must be strong correlation between those who live in the north having visited a majority of northern cities and those in the south visiting very southern cities.

Chipping in a bit late here (and if I've counted correctly):

England: 15 (17 if you include having changed trains there; 16 if you include those that later became cities; 18 if you include both)
Wales: 0
Scotland: 1
Northern Ireland: 0
