I am also amazed that they missed "Dogging in Brighton" and the classic trip that every Londoner has to do, the trip to Brighton. Wear something that makes you stand out as a twat from the city, mention your from London every chance you get, head to the beach be loud and obnoxious, get pissed, cook to a bold pink/red colour, be even more obnoxious, get head kicked in by pissed of locals, find out big London attitude does not make you as hard as first realised, spend time in A&E with Policeman standing guard, night in cells cheaper than a hotel don't knock it, travel back the following day, boast about how great your trip was to your friends, keep quiet about the ladyboy you secretly met when your friends were not looking and less said about what you did in the gay club the better, resume straight life with wife and kids in London. :)

So your views then about the list :)

no Furby, it's there ,


...Knockabout, Brighton!



not much to do in Scotland either, according to them. Oh well, that must be why there's so many Scots on Smeggys - nothing to do, nowhere to go.....

The knockabout is referring to a beach volley ball court we have here, which is right along side the nudist beach, so you can watch other balls bouncing up and down :rofl:

There is more to do then just that here, not just the darker side i mentioned before. What about the famous dirty weekend that Brighton became famous for? :)

It does seem an odd list :confused:

Don't you know about the portal in Weymouth? Just of the coast you go for a swim and the next moment your in a multi story car park in Skipton. Its wrecking the tourist industry in Weymouth but loads see it as an enjoyable trip.

I would not mind the nudist beach if it was not full of over 50's and gay men :pp:
