fascinating radio programme on undesirable places to visit

Jump to last reply

BBC Radio 4 ran a feature, on Saturday, which included two travel writers who make a habit of visiting undesirable places, some based on the sound of the name. Their experiences make for a very interesting listen and I enjoyed the comment from fellow guest Charles Allen who remarked that only the British would embark on such journeys.

Have you ever visited places whose names would normally put you off going and yet been pleasantly surprised. Just in Yorkshire there is a delightful village called Mankinholes and Ramsbottom in Lancashire is a gem (not really hidden) which has a wonderful farmers market, a steam train and one of the best restaurants in Lancashire.
