    No, just totted up, only 13, which as it is unlucky I will have to get a move on before I expire

    Ah, but I just remembered, had many in Bristol some years back, now does it count as it was a county then, then Gloucester I believe, now Avon, has it changed since?

    Is Bristol the County equivalent of a triple word score? Can I claim 16?

    Avon was a county between 1974 to 1996 before City of Bristol took it over. Avon is split into South Gloucestershire, City of Bristol, East Somerset and City of Bath district. Bit confusing I must say!

    However Avon doesnt count, you may claim 16

    Angry You all hate me really

    Alright, what have I done wrong today?

    First you all talk about cricket, now you are all talking about moving county borders.

    Next you'll all be talking about the pubs you hate and leaving axe job reviews

    This is a difficult one.

    I think I have been to every county in England (although some of the new administrative counties are, as hoppy says, a little confusing), i am currently trying to think of a county i have not had a pint in!

    I would love to come up with some sort of diary/personal log feature on the site, damned if I can work out how to make it easy to use though.

    My sad count of counties in England would probably tally about 10 for drinks, I suspect I may have drunk in every Welsh county though.

    Hi all,

    Just had a look on Wikipedia - I didn't realise there were 48 counties so I am going to have to have a good think about it !!
    A lot of my earlier travels revolved around drunken away matches so it won't be easy.
    A quick guess looks like about 25 so I think I am over half way !!
    Cheers,
    Del.

    It's all a bit hazy but in over 30 years of drinking I'm pretty sure it's only Suffolk that I have never drank in.

    Being less anglo-centric, in Wales I've only drunk in Cardiff, Port Talbot, Powys, Carnarvon, St Asaph, Llandudno, Llantwit Major, Barmouth and Blaenau Ffestiniog but then they keep changing the counties. In Scotland, where again everything keeps changing, I think everywhere except the Northern Isles, Tayside and Dumfries & Galloway. I've also been legless in Belfast and 'Derry. Never been to the Isle of Man which supposedly has the highest pub to people ratio in the British Isles.

    I have been all over Wales, and likely done them too for beer. Scotland I travelled all over in my teen years, so not done for beer. I have done IOW and IOM and had beer in both.

    Much of my travelling came from my football, archaeological and historical interests, and that i prefer to holiday here than abroad anyhow
