29 other cool places to live in the UK

We’re told that Jesmond is the 14th coolest place to live in Britain in a Times poll today. But unwilling to endorse The Times’ protectionist paywall policy, we decided to find out from Twitter, Facebook and fellow hyperlocal blogs what other towns, villages and suburbs rival Jesmond in coolness.

    Nowhere listed for Birmingham but Chorlton gets a shout?? surprise surprise. Moseley boasts the best is pubs, restaurants & parks, it has a jass festival, a folk festival, as for the ‘bohemian feel’ there are few places finer, it has the JRR Tolkien connection with Moseley bog and to top it off it has a brilliant ‘village’ feel to it, as there is in many of the high streets that were swallowed by brum in the post war years. Chorlton as much as I like it is just a watered down version. Who ever compiled this list has clearly never been to Moseley.

    What kind of sad person pays attention to these ‘surveys’. Arguing about the coolest place in Britain is a bit like arguing about the best deckchair on the Titanic.
