No matter where you live, there are always reasons to be gosh-darn proud of it. For instance, did you know that:

Clitheroe has the largest pigeons in the UK?

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards first agreed to form a band on the platform of Sidcup railway station?

And that Derry entered Guinness Book of World Records in 2007 for the biggest gathering of Santas - 13,000 in the one place?

Of course you didn’t. So join me and hundreds of contributors as we take a tour around the map of Britain to our favourite places, from the biggest city to the smallest village – with not a crap town among them. And when we get there, raise a glass to their achievements – whether they are humble, hilarious, genuinely impressive or downright weird ...

Cheers!
