    I never worked out Staines it was a regular stop over and I never had/saw any bother but the locals used to delight in telling me it was a bit rough. I was like you have houses with gardens on the river with boats moored, fuck off you soft twats.

    That walk is like walking down some Eastern Block city in the 1980s seeing most of the population on pure meths.

    I really like Rutherglen I even gave a local my city season card from the aguero season. Was proper gutted when I sobered up next day.

    Decent place if you avoid the high street, and South Bay during tourist season.

    The locals aren’t a bad bunch, but they can tell when you’re not from this neck.

    As a wagon driver I often end up sleeping in my cab in random towns and citys across the country and often I go to look for a pub where I can have a pint, bite to eat and watch the football.

    Most that I'd consider rough/weird shit holes have already been brought up on the thread. Scunthorpe, Birkenhead, Stoke and Wolverhampton are all unfriendly and weird places from my experience. Wolverhampton is probably a bit more city pride than weirdness to be fair but even so from my experience I'm in no rush to socialise there again.

    The worst two areas I've ever had to park my wagon and get my head down are erith/Dartford and thamesmead. Both absolute dumps and with the latter I decided to abort the search for a friendly pub within a 3 or 4 minute walk from my wagon, it was rough. Wigan and Warrington are both shit holes too.

    I had to visit Stalybridge on Monday and it was the most depressing experience in a town centre I believe I have ever had, lost count of the vaping shops and charity shops and it was almost empty.
    I know it isn't a city just thought I would chip in.
