As far as comparisons to Germany, I'm sure the poster must know that both Germany and England bombed the hell out of each other 70 years ago, and both rebuilt in a vague, semi-serious, we care what people might like to look at, kind of way. Honestly the variations of architecture (along with late night ethnic food) might be the greatest thing about both England and Germany's cities when compared to say Paris or Rome. Atleast whether wanted or not cities in England and Germany were forced to grow and rebuild because of that war, for better or worse.
Indeed. I always love the mixture of old and new, ugly and beautiful. Makes a city much more interesting!

Leeds looks grey but great. Keep the coming!

Looks like a Henry Moore sculpture.

Couldn't be further from the truth. I would not be making comparisons with other countries if I hadn't been there (though I guess some people might)
If you think U.K. cities compare favourably with those on the continent that's fine, after all that's your opinion!
