Cardiff
Norwich
Bristol
Actually, anywhere in the West Country or East Anglia
Northern Ireland
Orkney
Shetland
Leeds
Hull
Clowne
Kent
Stranraer

Honestly, I don't know which one I'd go to first, but I'm curious about NI. Got to be worth a look.

If you've not been to Belfast keep out of my way. This is a friendly warning, but it could turn unfriendly.

I've never been to errrrrr... One of those shit Midlands places. Wolverhampton, that's one.

I’d love to go to the islands, theres about a one hundred of them, has anyone done the islands? Tiny little bit maps. Like that weatherman molestor on This Morning who could jump around the kingdom. Anyone done an island (not Man or Manx that shit sucks) something off the grid

Cardiff too.  Why haven't I been there?  Bonkers.

Also: most of the south coast resorts west of Brighton.  The West Country also has patchy coverage.

Not much excuse when these are all a few hours drive.

Dundee, Belfast and Swansea are all lovely and some of them might still be in the UK in ten years time.

Oxford
Milton Keynes
Leamington Spa
Hereford
Worcester
Gloucester
Cheltenham
Swindon
North Wales & Anglesey
Liverpool
Manchester
Leeds
Sheffield
Newcastle & the North-East in general (except passing through on the A1 to Edinburgh).
Dundee, Aberdeen, Thurso & Wick (but have done Perth, Inverness & Ullapool).
Cramlington.

Done most other biggish places, either as a kid with my parents or as an adult under my own steam.

I'm now quite intrigued to make a list of where I HAVE been and when.  Just for my own sake you understand.

Sheffield is lovely in all the ways that Leeds isn’t.

I live equidistant between Leeds and Sheffield, like a Yorkshire grundle.

On Thursday I was on a coach that broke down in Leeds. Grim doesn't even begin to describe my mood at the time.

Imagine living there, I did from 2000 to 2017 and I have to confess as bad as that was it was an upgrade from living in Hull.

Cornwall.

Should I bother clogging the roads up and generally making the place look untidy? Does it need another twat?

Not been to Cornwall either. Or what is probably 99% of the country, including:

Any part of Wales except Portmerion and Pwllheli.
Northern Ireland.
Or, indeed, any of the islands around Great Britain that make up the rest of the UK except Walney Island.
Anywhere on the South coast of England except Torquay and Folkestone.
Lincolnshire
East Riding of Yorkshire, or whatever it's called. Hull, basically
Durham
Norfolk and Suffolk.
Leicester, Nottingham, Stoke*, Luton, Swindon*, Wolverhampton*, Watford*, etc etc.

* been through on a train, if that counts.

Actually, come to think of it, I've never been to Cardiff either.  Driven past it on the M4 oodles of times but never actually ventured in.

The Outer Hebrides, even though I live right next to the Inner Hebrides. Shocking really.

How do you get there? Is there a ferry from somewhere?

Re: places in the UK you have never been to

You get to Lewis and Harris (which are actually the same island) from Ullapool and North Uist from Uig on Skye, or there are various inter-island options. I was surprised to learn that Lewis is the Outer Hebrides because it's less than three hours on the ferry.

They've introduced Road Equivalent Tarriff on most of the routes so it's quite affordable now.
