Top 10 Worst places to live in #England 2018

Now in its twelfth glorious year, we present the Worst places to live in England 2018. After 31,191 readers voting for their least salubrious dump in this septic isle, we have a new king of sh*t tips. Is it your town?

With several Top 10 perennials falling out of the charts, it’s all change this year with a first for us, a town sharing joint ninth position. Anyway enough waffle, let’s get down to business of offending local councillors, dignitaries and meddlesome ratbags plus ruining the trade of slime ball lying estate agents. It makes our day when they react to the new Top 10, desperately trying to polish a turd of a town. So here goes, our definitive Top 10 of the worst god-awful hell holes in England 2018, enjoy!

10. Dover

Dropping from last year’s No.1 and cherry on top of the s**t town cup cake, is Dover. If you have never been there, the name of the town probably conjures up images of the iconic white cliffs. The reality is, Dover is one of the biggest dumps in the South East. Don’t take out word for it though, this is what one our contributors had to say:

If you’re leaving the country and you feel safer in CALAIS (of all places), there’s something to be said about Dover!
All in all no-one wants to live here, but it’s the cheapest sh*thole in Kent, it’s unloved and unwanted which is why I believe the German Air Force should have done their jobs properly and levelled the place back in the 1940’s and maybe it wouldn’t look like the scrotum of Quasimodo that it does now.
Let us for a moment imagine that the British Isles are the silhouette of an old man. Scotland is his cap, Cornwall his toes, Anglia his curved spine, making Dover his herpes infested sh*t-hole.

    My daughter is thinking of doing an exchange with her university here in Australia and studying at University East Angelia in Norwich, UK starting January 2018. I’ve just been told Norwich is pretty rough, lots of drugs etc, I’m not sure as I left the U.K when I was 14 to emigrate to Australia with my parents, so any info would be appreciated. She’s 19 but will be traveling there alone.

    Britain has been slowly dying for decades now……the Government have tried their damndest to hide reality from the population but the country is in a lot of trouble. I doubt we’ll ever recover. The END IS NEAR.

    the worst places??? Not even close this places are beautiful and secure compared to the city of Valparaiso located in Chile… Valparaiso is sinonimous of decadence

  4. ProudGravesend

    I have lived in many towns and counties in my life and I now live in Gravesend. To state that it is the 7th worst place to live in the UK is an absolute joke! It is an historic town with beautiful landmarks, it is a stone throw away from beautiful woodland areas and has direct access to London and further into Kent. The average cost of a house in Gravesend is £250,000! I don’t know what defines a ‘chav’ other then comedy programmes but I havent ever met anyone in the area who has caused any problems or issues for me. Most people are friendly and there is a sense of community – if people feel like there isn’t one then I feel saddened by this and it’s a sad state of affairs if people think that Gravesend is a terrible place to live. I can’t quite work out how this list was compiled but what. I can work out is that it is NOT the feeling of everyone who lives in Gravesend and I find it totally disrespectful and offensive to list any town on a list like this – in an offensive and joking manner. I for one am proud to call Gravesend my home and if anyone reading this shoddy piece of literature wants to visit the town I think you would be pleasantly surprised.

    Thank god Burnley is not on the list!
    (I don’t live in Burnley thankfully I live in a “relatively” posh neighbourhood in a nearby town but I still have to look at all those deprived tatty terraced houses with bits of paint coming off them, and there’s still sooooo many of them, ugh! God I feel sorry for the people who have to live in such filthy homes.)

    I’m sure there are worse looking places out there in the world. Your streets are swept clean and paved. Most of them looked pretty okay from the photo’s.

  7. hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha this list is such bulsh*t…Dover???? hahahaha i go there for hoilday, where the f*ck is leicester, i been most these places before and honestly LC blows these other cities out the water hahahaha


    For ‘Luton’ read slum of the Middle East, as long as you face east 24/7 that’s ok.
    To my chagrin, I was actually born there and for my 14th birthday I was on a bus leaving it, and it didn’t go fast enough nor far enough.
    I went back once some years ago, to make some deliveries and every house In town that I went to had an asian family living in it, I found that the only people who weren’t Asian lived outside the town. Those (in the town) that I delivered to gave very imperious orders as instructions, whereas those who lived outside the town treated me with open friendliness.
    Secular Fascism is alive and well in Luton, so if you want to find a local ‘jihadi’, just advertise in Luton.

    Dover council shoud be absolutely ashamed of themselves, it’s an utter disgrace, one of the biggest potential towns in Kent, the most picturesque views and a beautiful castle, overshadowing the whole town, such a shame that it has been let down so badly by the people “looking after it”

  11. There’s a massive difference between being called a few names once in a while, and living with it day in, day out, job interviews, police harassment etc etc your whole life though isn’t there, and I don’t see how you can be so stupid that you seriously don’t get that?

    So it’s hard to read what you’re writing and not question why you feel the need to take this self-pitying attitude like you have to be the centre of the world when other people have it far far worse on a much wider scale, and you clearly know that 100%.
