Positive and negative!

I went to Las Vegas, glad I went, but no desire to return! smile

Would never return to Warwick Castle. It's quite over rated...and not much even happened there, it just looks the part! smile

Oxford! I found it so boring, weird vibe and lacking in charm.

Bath, thought it would be beautiful but Harrogate (10 minutes up the road) is far nicer 🤷🏼‍♀️

Pevensey. In fact anywhere along that bit of coast. desolate, depressing and just plain crap.

Spent a week down there a few years ago, jesus couldn't get home quick enough grin

Gran canaria. Wind, wind and more wind. Also, London.

I thought I must have missed a big part of Oxford as it wasn't at all how I expected it.

Sundown adventure

Very tired place that charges adult prices for 2 year +

I get it’s aimed at toddlers so they can go on everything but for the price it was, it was very expensive

Cuba - beautiful but very ppor, got food poisoning and food and hotel quality (5* Sandals) more like 3* UK. We paid £1k each!

So many questions.

Do you mean Bath or somewhere else or is there another Bath in addition to 'the' Bath? Likewise Harrogate.

Or is there some sort of wormhole between Bath and Harrogate of which I am unaware, as I thought they were more like 5 hours apart?

This country? Kidderminster. I'd also avoid London unless there was something specific I really wanted to see.

Abroad? France.

BarbaraofSeville yeah I scratched my head at that too.

Bath in Somerset? 10 min from Harrogate in N Yorks? Have you ever been to either of those places? grin or looked at a map? That’s hysterical- what did you mean?

Gentrification my arse.

That had me toogrin
I take it you mean Harrogate is 10 mins up the road from you and not from Bath?

Birmingham. I’ve never gone anywhere else in the UK where people hassled you on the street for money. London, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Newcastle - nobody has ever approached me on the street and made me feel threatened. But in Birmingham it happened repeatedly; on my first walk through the city centre I was approached about 3-4 times and asked for money. It kept happening so I left early because it spoiled my visit.

Oh, I get it now. OP went all the way to Bath from somewhere in North Yorkshire and she thought 'I could have saved myself the bother and just popped out to Harrogate one afternoon'.

DismantledKing Thu 22-Jul-21 12:07:23

Hastings. What a shithole.
Poole. Ditto

Gertie75 Thu 22-Jul-21 12:07:31

Scottish Highlands, beautiful place but vast, I was expecting more pretty and less wild, more like the lake district, there are miles and miles of nothing, it was also hard to find decent places to walk the dogs as everywhere was so boggy.

Bangkok..... Felt very on edge there 😏

Washington DC. We were on holiday but the place and people very uptight. Was glad to move on to the next location!
