    I don't remember reminding you about this thread, but my pleasure if I did!

    Funnily enough, I would love to get the Ferry to Northern Ireland one day and perhaps see Belfast - I believe that things have calmed down in the past 20 years over there and so it would make a great place to visit one day.

    My late father was born in Doncaster where (Still) Open All Hours was filmed - I have been up there a few times, but never seen Lister Avenue where the shop was.

    I have been trying to visit Hull and Cardiff but never seem to get round to doing so.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    Being a Central TV series, I am certain that a lot of the series was actually filmed in Nottingham. Ironically, there is a YouTube clip online with some Tyne Tees continuity into an episode...

    I don't think it was. Mind you, aren't barber shops and hairdressers meant to be the same thing, where one gets their hair cut? Or are hairdressers different as they are focused on women a lot more as they provide perms, blue rinses and all that?

    I can highly recommend Bath, having been there a few times. Also, we paid a flying (punting) visit to Cambridge a few years back - total fun!
