The Shockers

We absolutely love it when a town that sees itself as some posh middle class haven (especially in southern England) makes it into the top 50. Oh we laugh, yes we do indeed. This year we are publishing the entire top 50 in full after the No.1, so you can see where all the finalists finished. Making a splash on our charts this year are the following snooty sh*tholes, one makes it into the top 10!

  • Chichester
  • York
  • Torquay
  • Boscombe
  • Aylesbury

That’s quite enough waffle, let’s get down to the dirty business for 2021.

10. Halifax

Just scraping back into the charts at No.10 from the ‘Cleckhuddersfax’ golden triangle of Yorkshire grimness is Halifax. The only reason you’ve probably heard of it is because of the Building Society that bares its name. If that wasn’t bad enough, its only other claim to fame is Ed Sheeran was born there. Here’s what our less-than-impressed contributors had to say:

I soon realised that I would need an interpreter in Halifax as the locals spoke only in grunts and squints
It came as quite a shock when the locals began inspecting and touching our clothing. I think it was the first time they had seen anyone without tracksuit bottoms and food stained hooded tops.
Nothing in the world can prepare you for Halifax. My girlfriend who comes from Bristol is often gobsmacked… and she only sees it on a weekend when the yokels are dressed up!
The lovely ladies are not chatted up in this town, they totter out of the nightclubs legless and sh*g in an alleyway. A truly awful town.
