Where do you live in the UK? I currently live in Bangor, North Wales. It is in beautiful location, with Snowdon and the sea close by, but it doesn't have much to do, bar drinking and eating. It's also like one big council estate, with too many townies. Do you like where you live?

Interesting topic James  Big grin

I live in Southampton, Southern England. It's very good. Consists of around 250,000 inhabitants so it is quite densely populated. It has a thriving night life, loads and loads of clubs/pubs across the whole city. I don't mind living where I am as it has plenty to offer and not so bad public transport systems  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I live near Caerphilly, South Wales.. a few miles north of Cardiff...

Lovely area (well most of it).. near Cardiff, plenty to do, good amenities, not too far from Brecon Beacons and of course home to the GEAS Aircraft Engine centre.

Regards..

Chris

Bristol here... Dunno what I can say about it, apart from alot of the 60's architecture it is quite a nice city in the older areas, but thats it.. About 500,000 people live here, so its quite a big city.

Pe@rson - Ha! I'm going to visit my Uncle in Llanrug next weekend, thats pretty close to Bangor! He says that some of his older friends (i.e. old loonies) have PPL licenses and fly out from Bognor regularly.. If they offer a flight, i'll give it a miss though  Big grin.
