But there were plenty of contenders for the top spot, including Basingstoke, Coventry and Gateshead. Voters were encouraged to comment and the website highlights some of the responses.

Basingstoke was once a pretty English market town, but just look at the concrete monstrosity that now passes for the town centre.says another.
