They don't say 'it's grim up north' for nothing.

I'd say Leeds is 6th/7th, not 4th/5th. I'd place London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Edinburgh above it for certain, plus possibly Liverpool too.

In terms of rain it isn't really a north/south divide but a west/east divide, the west of the country gets more rain than the east and mountainous areas get the most as this map shows.



Rainfall in the UK isn't actually that high by international standards, even cities with a rainy reputation like Manchester have less annual rainfall than places like Sydney, New York or Milan. Rain tends to be light and persistent and the reason the UK probably has its rainy rep is because of the number of rainy days rather than the actual amount of water that falls.

London has 153 average with rainfall over 0.25mm, York has 187 and Oban in Scotland has 222! In the West rainfall tends to be heavier in the winter and lighter in the summer while in the east the summers are often wetter than the winters.

The temperature in the Summer is generally warmer in South and Central England while in the winter the eastern half of the country tends to be colder as it is more affected by weather coming in from Scandinavia and Russia. These are two old maps unfortunately but they show the general pattern of temperatures in January and July.

Whatta joke!!!
Pictures of buildinghs lit up at night to disguise their utter ugliness! (I'm referring to atrocities like the Lowry Rheatre in Manchester). Eh, oop, Choock! Ah'm nt bahn et!

Contrast that with the tate Britain picture. Basically, there oughta be a rule whereby pics should be of buildings in daylight, on a dull day. IF they still look attractive, ok. Otherwise, it's basically a commentary on the lighting. Innit?

Oh, and the *bleep*ing Peckham Library. They had to SHUT IT DOWN to change LIGHTBULBS!!! Nice one, eh? All silk frock and no knickers!
Is this, by any chance, a 'fawn over every single new building' forum? Any place for a grumpy old SOB like yours truly? Hmmm....

Personally I like both the Peckham library and The Lowry, I'm sure there is a 'hate progress or anything modern/fawn over Doric columns' forum if you search for it.

Can't you just go one thread without this pathetic city bashing. I made the statement quite ambiguous to prevent this kind of nonsense. Seriosuly, what is your problem? Can't we just have one thread celebrating Britain as a whole instead of resulting to this petty one up manship.
