Top 10 Worst places to live in #England 2017

8. Sunderland

Our second new entry, displacing the sh*te town leviathan that is Stoke-on-Trent, is Sunderland. Our only town from Tyne and Wear this year as Middlesborough drops out of the charts. When mentioning that they were moving to Sunderland, someone was given the advice “It’s a pretty sad place, to be honest. Find somewhere with easy access to Newcastle City Centre and you’ll be happy”. Here’s what our readers have to say:

Sunderland’s only real claim to fame is that it has the highest rate of teen pregnancies in the Europe
You see these females, and I use the term loosely, with their omni present offspring (Demi Louise, Chantelle, Tyler, Kylie, Mercedes Lambrini) trudging up and down Newbottle Street in the snide Burberry and Kappa, their foil lined bags abrim with the mornings spoils of shoplifting from Superdrug

    the worst places??? Not even close this places are beautiful and secure compared to the city of Valparaiso located in Chile… Valparaiso is sinonimous of decadence

  • Dave Jackson

    I would of thought Chatham in Medway Kent would be number 1 or at least in top 5

  • ProudGravesend

    I have lived in many towns and counties in my life and I now live in Gravesend. To state that it is the 7th worst place to live in the UK is an absolute joke! It is an historic town with beautiful landmarks, it is a stone throw away from beautiful woodland areas and has direct access to London and further into Kent. The average cost of a house in Gravesend is £250,000! I don’t know what defines a ‘chav’ other then comedy programmes but I havent ever met anyone in the area who has caused any problems or issues for me. Most people are friendly and there is a sense of community – if people feel like there isn’t one then I feel saddened by this and it’s a sad state of affairs if people think that Gravesend is a terrible place to live. I can’t quite work out how this list was compiled but what. I can work out is that it is NOT the feeling of everyone who lives in Gravesend and I find it totally disrespectful and offensive to list any town on a list like this – in an offensive and joking manner. I for one am proud to call Gravesend my home and if anyone reading this shoddy piece of literature wants to visit the town I think you would be pleasantly surprised.
