I live in County Durham ... in the cold, damp North of England where (from a stereotypical viewpoint) we are friendlier and more accepting of strangers. I certainly enjoy living here!

I've also lived in the North West (Liverpool), Midlands (derby and Nottingham) and the awful South (Billericay) and feel that either the North East or South West are the best places to be.

... but that's just my opinion.

teeside no question. easy access to all the other cool places, ie north york moors, coast(whitby, saltburn), not far to scotland or the lakes. and apparently some folk love the local delicacy which is the parmo. not a fan meself.

and as all the industry we did have closes then its deffo worth a look. (like).

I live in North West Sheffield on the edge of the Peak District National Park, been here 12 years having lived all over Britain before and I can honestly say it's the best place I've ever lived in. Beautiful countryside on my door step and a city 10 minutes away, and the locals are a friendly bunch, don't ever see me ever moving to anywhere else now.

Well said sir. London and it's people always get a bashing. You get unfriendly sorts wherever you go. Maybe some folk are intimidated by London and it's colourful cultures.

I don't live in London but once did for a few years.

I'm now in the 'cultural heartland' that is Westcliff On Sea, Essex. 40 mins on the train from London, 12 mins walk from the seafront and a lovely big park just around the corner. Pace of life is much better and what with being a family man I'm not too arsed by the lack of nightlife these days but there's a good scene if you look beyond the usual "Essex facade".

The downside of living here is the usual Essex brigade messing up the place. Wandering along the seafront on a sunny day can bring a little bit of sick into ones mouth I must say. Oh the sights, the horror the horror....
