ali, you have to put yourself beyond the laws, compadre.
I was raised by a load of irish pagans, and spent years living as part of a 'hippie commune', setting up festivals, getting sound systems together, selling mushrooms to hawkwind, and apart from castle morton, when our rig got nicked, the law has never meant anything to me.
try it.
trust me, you'll like it.....

My grandmother has just bought herself a luxury caravan at a huge caravan park at Cleveleys, near Blackpool.  Hers is one of just two out of the hundreds of caravans there that are the absolute top notch luxury ones.  On the caravan park there is a club, a pub, an amusements, a little funfair, a swimming pool, and other things like that.  And it's only a short ride from all the fun things you can do at Blackpool, Europe's most popular seaside resort.

:w00t: Can I... can I have a link to that, please?
I mean, the Illuminations (this thread will probably come up now whenever someone searches UM for the Illuminati, ha!) and Pleasure Beach are pretty good, but it's not where I'd pick to go on holiday. Maybe I live too near...

Don't go to London or Manchester?

So you want tourists to come to Britain but not visit Buckingham Palace, St James's Palace, Kensington Palace, Hampton Court Palace, the Tower of London, the British Museum, the Natural History Museum, Hyde Park, Harrods, St Paul's Cathedral, the London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, the Tate Modern, the National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, the Science Museum, the Victoria & Albert Museum, Madame Tussauds, the Royal Museums Greenwich, the Manchester Ship Canal, the Museum of Science and Industry, Old Trafford, the Emirates, the MEN Arena, the Lowry Outlet Mall, Canal Street, the Royal Exhange Theatre, the Imperial War Museum North, and places near Manchester like Salford Docks, Salford's Lowry Centre and Salford's MediaCityUK, the new home of much of the BBC?
I'm going to be as serious as cancer here.
We've seen every nook and cranny of the UK.
But how are we going to sell our particular county?
As well as those you said we've got the Trafford Centre,the Ethiaad ,Old Trafford and the M60.
I don't think she really wants to see a football match but she might need some retail therapy.
It has to be said though that things are much more expensive here unless you go to Primark.
But I'll have to say Middleton is a pretty drab satellite town.
You see a lot of Edgar Wood's architecture and even a crooked pub.
But it's just an other urban hellhole that could be a suburb of anything.
I assure you it wasn't always that way because it was thriving when cotton was king.
Because Bolton's bigger it's bound to have more history and appeal.
Still Middleton's my home and I don't want to change it really.

I'm not far from Manchester...  I live 10 miles from Town straight up the A6 by the Goyt Valley and the Peak National Park. It has the most beautiful scenery, canals, country pubs and stunning walks.

@ Medium Brown.
"We've seen every nook and cranny of the UK.
You obviously weren't looking very well...
So your telling me that you've seen all the stunning little villages in Cambridgeshire with the rows of thatched cottages.
Or Seen the sun set of the Lakes in Autumn.
Spent a summer day on the white sand at the Gower in South Wales.
Walked along hadrian's wall with a cool winter breeze then walking into a rural pub and warmed your self by an open fire with a Pint and some home cooked food.
Done the Ghost walk around York walls on a clear Halloween.
Taken a bike ride through Thetford Forest/Forest of Dean on a spring afternoon.
Seen the New Years fireworks on the Thames.
Listened to the Cannons at Edinburgh castle.
Watched the Sun setting over the Islands of the Mull of Kintrye.
Stood around a bon fire and watched a public firework display.
Been to a Village fete on May day.
Driven down the coast from Dublin to Cork.

I could go on and on.

NO, You mention retail therapy at PRIMARK!!! Also Why would someone travel to the UK an Visit the M60. And to the others whinging about Chavs. Why would you travel here and go to a council estate. Would you travel to the USA to visit a Ghetto or a trailer park. Or visit Paris and visit the outer suburbs. As for Football, why the hell would anyone want to go and watch a bunch of overpaid fannies run around after a ball and fall over if someone brushes past them.

At original poster. We have our fair share of problems with politicians and chavs. But one I feel that we have an abundance of is whiners and moaners b****ing about everything.

Ah Monday morning rant over....

Just don't goto London, Manchester, infact any of the cities. The countryside and highlands are really nice. Oh the lake district too,

I will say that being a Londoner myself, there are some areas which I would recommend staying away from, but who knows, maybe some tourists like to see those areas as part of their tour?
The reason I left London was because I have seen the changes in the area I lived and they were not for the better. But this is not to say there are still some fantastic places to visit. I moved to the country and love it, but the good memories of London will always be in my heart.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I went to the US many years ago, and we drove through a small ghetto, it was actually very interesting to see how other people live. Just because you do not want to rent a room there for the week, does not mean its not of interest to some.

Ah Monday morning rant over....
I already thought we've already gone through ever nook and cranny.
And besides when I said that I was actually referring to all the descriptions here.
Including yours which has surely covered all the bases from John O Groats to Lands End.
However I think your pretty dissipointed that I didn't share the other posters enthusiasm for the countryside.
Anybody would think I didn't enjoy it but it's about getting your priorities straight.
Beggars can't be choosers and besides if you don't know family like me you would stay in Middleton too.
If it wasn't for them I'll definetly attempt to hike in the Lake District.
The mountain of my dreams is waiting there for me to climb it...
However of all your possible attractions the only one I've been close to is Hadrian's Wall.
Mind you it was a case of we came,we saw,then we left which does make us look shallow.
I know I should have widened my field but I had my own county on my brain.
The most cynical people would think that the M60 is nothing more than a glorified cordon.
She could always get her retail therapy from the village Arts And Crafts shop.
I think your being a bit tad unfair about football  because it's a driving passion in the UK.

My point was that we haven't gone through every nook and cranny, not even close. I get annoyed when every time there's a post (on this site, public forums, or especially major news site, etc) about visiting the UK there's this barrage of trolling by whiners, "oh it rains to much", "oh there's chavs", "oh the rich people are rich". But the moment you scratch beneath the surface they've not ventured out of their little town. Other than to some Spanish all inclusive where they flock to the first Union Jack or St Georges cross and talk about how we do things better at home.
But now I come to think of it, I'm not sure whether I get annoyed from being patriotic or just having a very low tolerance for whinny people.

As for football. I will not dispute that it a huge driving passion and rightly so. Its one of the greatest exports we have made. But you cannot deny that its played by a load of over paid babies, falling over to basically cheat. And our national team is a bloody joke.

If you see my first post on this thread I was actually been tongue in cheek.
I don't think Chavs are much of a big deal as I was making out there.
I wasn't even glorifying them or making out their haunts are the ideal places for tourists.
So it's make me wonder what side of the fence you are when it's come to them.
You moan about people moaning about Chavs  but did I give the impression I was moaning.
I was really struggling to find anything worthy to say about Greater Manchester and I failed.
I'm not some kind of troll who moans about everything regardless how trivial.
Now we've got that out of the way I do venture outside of my little town.
And truth be told I would like these excursions to be of a more permanent nature.
I'm not the hater of country life your making me out to be.
We'll call it a draw on the football.
