Top 10 Worst places to live in #England 2017

We have been compiling the top 10 worst places to live in England for more than a decade. Thousands of readers have voted for their least salubrious dump in this septic isle.  Offending local councillors, dignitaries and meddlesome ratbags plus ruining the trade of slime ball lying estate agents, makes our day as they do their level best to polish a turd of a town.  There were some upsets this year and a new entry rocketing into the charts at number 1, that is sure to cause some outrage in their respective local rags.  So for 2017 we present our definitive Top 10 of the worst god-awful hell holes in England, enjoy!

10. Blackpool

Dropping down from number 4 is the entertainment capital of the North. Once famed for its golden mile, Blackpool now conjures up images of drunken stags and hens, falling over in the street and spewing on themselves, before retiring to a grotty seaside B&B. Here’s what our readers have to say:

You may think it’s a jolly seaside resort with candy floss and donkeys, it’s a scumbucket for the transients who come here to draw benefits in a holiday resort, instead of an inner city.
Go back a few streets from the prom and you will see the deprivation, the ghettos and the scummy pubs that make up the REAL Blackpool.

    No they are not all neighbourly like those. Some are far worse. Good job they where moderate Muslims.

  • Peter

    You might not say that if you were on the receiving end of racist comments…Just saying…

    • Pauline Bate

      Like I have just said to Emma..it works both ways doesn’t it..and yes I have been on the receiving end of it..I was born and raised in the midlands.There is not much I have not seen,between black and white people…I have been called names at school and yeras later too..What do you suggest to prevent racism then?

  • Peter

    Bradford has a lot going for it….the Media Museum, Alahambra Theatre, the Industrial Museum, Saltaire and Salt Mills and the wonderful Bronte country of Haworth, just to mention a few…

  • Zaney Marie

    I’m Born n Bred Barking n Dagenham girl ….. and although im putting plans afoot to move … i will say Dagenham used to be a lovely place to live, good shops, good amenities and LOTS of green open spaces to get away from the rat race ….. the reason Dagenham and Barking are turning into sh*tholes is Margaret Hodge and the local council! the council leader is a showboating attention whore who has completly trashed the borough …. it’s not the people … it’s the lunatics running the asylum!

  • Kerrie

    I love Bradford, yes you can buy a cheap takeaway yes the nightclub scene isn’t high on the agenda. But its rich in history and has a very diverse mix of people who all live together in one tiny town…but I love it. And if people spent less time sh*tting on their own cities and wrote about what was good you might get more tourism and therefore build the place up..

  • Lucy Johnson

    They were much worse. What the f*ck does it matter what order they came in ? No government could ever be worse than them. Ever.

  • jordan

    gwersyllt, wrexham is full of gangs and thugs i know because i live there

  • Horny_goat_weed

    London, truly is the worst of all – from property prices, to crime rate.

  • Truthsayer

    Yeah why don’t you move your butt to Syria or Iraq?

  • lokowoko

    hull as a whole isn’t bad, just avoid a few areas and you’ll be fine, there’s more places in london that’s worse than hull

  • heavycola

    “It’s what they do”

    Does ‘they’ this refer to:
    Anyone from Asia?
    Ethnic Indians?
    People with dark skin?

    Just out of interest.

  • heavycola

    “It’s the Asians who are the racists as many of them will not integrate or conform to our laws”

    This is a racist statement. You are a racist.

    • Ben

      F*cking right mate. Words of truth 👌👌

    • Apollocreed

      To expect foreigners to conform to our laws is not racist.Racism is treating someone badly due to their ethnicity, and he didn’t say anything like that.

    • Pauline Bate

      what’s a racist..A made up word to silence debate..tiresome pillocks use it on a regular basis..even dogs are racist,according to some loonies!!

    • Zaney Marie

      hmmm ….. if you call an Asian racist then you are a racist …. if you call a white person a racist then you are a victim???
      so heavycola all i can see is your bigoted hypocritical comment
      therefore YOU are a bigoted hypocrite!

  • YungG4LYFE

    I live in Cornwall it’s truly the worst place to live, it’s incredibly boring, there’s nothing to do, no big cities and definitely no place to raise your children, no way I’m raising mine here!

    • Lucy Johnson

      Cornwall is lovely compared to most of the U.K.

  • Charles Crofts

    I brought a house in Coventry around 25 years ago, it was a pleasant area, clean and tidy, 15 years later I was one of 3 white family’s left, surrounded by 3 mosques, a smell of curry, Asian shops with their products reaching 3 foot from the edge of the pavement not to mention the rubbish left on the streets. I feel I was forced to move out and decided on the north of England, the weather may not be as good up here but it beats Coventry by a mile, only problem is its beginning to happen up here, the way things are going I will end up on a boat in the north sea

  • Nathan

    Lol England is a Great Country folks, most inner cities have developed into S**t holes because the Laws you have here are not adequate to deal with serious criminals like in America. I hear people say the Death penalty is not a deterant, but England has not the land mass of the U.S.A and besides it is a deterant tell that to the hood who is about to get the lethal injection and his/her ass is gonna be blown into oblivion.
    It will certainly make those who weald guns and knives think because with actions comes the consequences. They will soon get the POINT.
