Eastbourne, the worst town ever.

Eastbourne is the worst town in England. It may even be the worst town in the world. It's a real hellhole. A grotty, stinking crap-tropolis. If Eastbourne was a person, it would be a fat racist in a ****-stained tracksuit. If it was an animal it would be a really big, really persistent wasp that survives two direct hits with a rolled-up copy of the Daily Telegraph and still comes back to sting you on the eyeball. If it was a pizza it would be margarita topped with vomit. I've only been to Eastbourne once, but that was enough. If you try and convince me to go back, I swear to whichever God you believe in that I'll hold my breath until I turn blue and pass out....

I fail to believe there are many worse places than Jaywick.

Eastbourne: Allegedly where half of Liverpool heads to for their drugs habit.

To suggest Eastbourne is the worst town ever I would imagine he has not been to Grimsby !.

Close, but I'd recommend Goole, which beats both Colchester & Tilbury for inbreeding. It's a one horse town without the horse, I kid you not everyone looks the same, obviously because they come from the same gene pool.

Totally agree with you there , plus i spent nearly 3 years in Eastbourne (on and off) . The Mead's and older part of Eastbourne (also going up to the Italian Gardens and Beachy head) are very nice . Often went out in the summer evenings with the now Ex and had some very nice evening stroll's

Meads is where they've built most of the Uni, so no doubt the value of property has rapidly decreased...

I took my wife there for her birthday a few years ago.
As a journalist I'd have expected you to maybe have done some research?

I went to Brighton Universities open day in Eatbourne and thought it was a pretty decent area! A lot better than southend..

Try Rossendale , Stayed there after a Rochdale game a few years ago, eveyone (except the Pub landlord who was from Epping) had identical overbites ....hideous

Interesting quote harry. If you come from Birmingham your a brummie, from Newcastle your a geordie, so if you come from Goole are you a 'goolie'?.
