    Staines,Windsor and Uxbridge were pretty mundane I thought.

    You can look at the river in Staines and the Castle in Windsor while accidentally tripping up tourists. Uxbridge has Boris the Buffoon as the MP!

    Windsor is fine if you throw Eton in as part of the package, there's at least 5 decent pubs.

    Agree with Staines, never much cop though that's true of most of the surrounds like Chertsey, Addlestone etc.

    I recall Doncaster (with one honourable exception) being pretty naff.

    I went to Doncaster last year and it far exceeded expectations. It's not in the PUG crawl league but I only went to 2 that I didn't like a t all.

    Birkenhead is dire. Blackburn is woeful. Rhyl is crap. Fleetwood is poor. Chorley, however, is surprisingly very good.

    Add Sunbury and Egham to the Surrey list.
