10. Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough or ‘Boro’ as the locals know it, is a bit like Newcastle but without the style and sophistication, imagine that! Dropping down the charts from last year’s number 2 slot, here’s what our readers have to say:

I have lived on the outskirts of Boro for 29 years and would never dream of living within Boro itself, it really is a s**thole!




  • Truth_Ugly

    The friendly “Cousins” you are talking about are Pakistanis and not from Indian Sub-continent!

  • YungG4LYFE

    I live in Cornwall it’s truly the worst place to live, it’s incredibly boring, there’s nothing to do, no big cities and definitely no place to raise your children, no way I’m raising mine here!

  • Charles Crofts

    I brought a house in Coventry around 25 years ago, it was a pleasant area, clean and tidy, 15 years later I was one of 3 white family’s left, surrounded by 3 mosques, a smell of curry, Asian shops with their products reaching 3 foot from the edge of the pavement not to mention the rubbish left on the streets. I feel I was forced to move out and decided on the north of England, the weather may not be as good up here but it beats Coventry by a mile, only problem is its beginning to happen up here, the way things are going I will end up on a boat in the north sea
