I have cousins in Leeds. They say it's great. I think they're lying. Pricks.
Ah! Newcastle. I've had some memorable nights there!It's not an intuitive place. One good gallery in the city centre. But the centre is very corporate. Difficult to figure it out, but if you're going to a gig, some good spots. Wharf Chambers...I think there's a boycott on that place at the minute. Some dubious carry-on with non-P.C issues.
Newcastle is the big of the bunch by a frigging mile. Awesome architecture, friendly people, great little spots everywhere. Although some people who've lived there despise the grotesquery of the student culture there.
Is York really the worst town in England? I was thinking of going there next month for a few hours.
I went to York today, it was shit. So many people milling around, it was insufferable and I left fairly quickly. Worse than Galway. I did pick up Rainbow Stories by William Vollmann so it wasn't a complete waste of time.I did my MA there, and soon grew to despise the homogeneous, middle class nature of it. So, I hold a special bias.
If you go, make sure you hit all the secondhand/charity bookstores. I got some great stuff cheap in my time there.
Yeah, you're basically right, it's not greatI have cousins in Leeds. They say it's great. I think they're lying. Pricks.
