Is it true that in Britain, people from smaller towns ( or villages ) detest having their towns described as "quaint"?

I imagine people who live in villages and small towns wouldnt mind it being called quaint, as quaint implies small and quiet but at the same time it means pretty and traditional. Someone from a larger town or city might find it condescending as it implies thier town is small and insignificant more than pretty and traditional.

The ancient city of Worcester is on the east bank of the River Severn. As the city's boundaries were redefined in modern times it has come to encompass the village of St. Johns, which is on the opposite bank. The main axis of the city runs roughly North to South. The Cathedral sits at the southern end of the High Street. Worcester cathedral has been a place of worship since 680AD, the present building dates from 1084AD onwards.

Thanks guys, SO143 i used an Olympus PEN E-PL1

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympusepl1/

Great cammera for taking snappy shots but also just as good as a decent SLR cammera whith the ability to adjust everything. The size is good also when being a tourist as its not so bulky and doesnt attract much attention. I have tweaked the pictures slightly in photoshop but nothing more than cropping them and maybe one or two i adjusted the exposure slightly (but hats me being picky rather than any real need to). The camera has come down alot in price recently and there is another better camera on the market now (at the price i origionally paid for this one) but i have never been disapointed with this camera, be it me using it on maual settings or family on auto settings.

Is Worcester bigger than Ledbury? It looks more like a city. Both places are beautiful but they look very different from each other. I wish we had buildings like the ones in Ledbury here in the US.

Yes, Worcester is a small city with a population of 95,000 while Ledbury is just a small rural market town of 10,000.

Great photos btw, I spent a day in Ledbury for work a year or two ago, its a very pleasant little town. Worcester is nice too, been there several times, it's similar in many ways to my home town 50 miles further up the River Severn.

Worcester for it's size is fantastic I think. It needs a music venue but the new Basketball Arena will allow for concerts and attract bigger music acts.

Other than that cant think of anything it lacks.

It suffers football wise due to its proximity to Birmingham and Wolverhampton which is a shame although they have just gained permission for a new football stadium which could help them improve.

But for it's size I think sporting wise it exceeds what a population of it's size should with the cricket, rugby and basketball.

It is Worcester i assure you I imagine you probably spent your time on Friar street, i didnt get a chance to visit it and it's probably the prettiest street in the city.

As Jonesy 55 has said Worcester is a much larger place, the US has its own unique buildings that we in the UK would like as well so i would worry!
