Barnsley in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... fish and chip shops, jacket potato places, sandwich shops, and a few Greggs too. NIGHTLIFE The nightclubs in the town centre are again close to one another, which again is an advantage. When I go elsewhere, I dont know where any of the good nightlife is, as they all seem streets apart, or taxi rides apart! In Barnsley, there are 3 main rows of streets for the nightlife. There is a row where the "starter pubs" are situated, near the Town Hall, you then walk down the hill, and this street has the nightclubs which are open from around 9pm - 2am. You then walk around the corner and the next street has the nightclubs which a... more

I have lived in Barnsley for all my life (I am 19). The reason I like Barnsley is that everything is close together. For example.. SHOPPING I go to Leeds or Sheffield shopping, and I don't know my way around. All the shops are far apart from each other, and I can never find places to eat, especially healthy places to eat. In Barnsley town centre, the shops are a 2 minute walk from the bus station. They are all on one street leading up to The Mall shopping centre, where the rest of the shops are. There are a few shops on streets around the main street, and an indoor market area coming off the main shopping street. So it is all tightly packed and ... Read the complete review

I used to live in barnsley, and unfortunately, i had to move away with my mother, and i can honestly say i miss it dearly.It was a really friendly community. The shops probably couldve been better, but i probably only think that because i now live in middlesrough, and theres loads of shops.

Barnsley is a pretty good place to live, 70% rural, good cheap housing, friendly folk, good facilities. Good place to visit too, though not on a Friday or Saturday night unless you can drink 20 pints wearing a T shirt in the middle of winter (thigh high skirt for the ladies, coz thems' the rules) I moved to Barnsley on boxing day 1997, so I have been here over 10 years. My primary reason for moving here was because I did not want my youngest son growing up in London. Although I was born and bred in London, it's a hard place nowadays. I actually chose Barnsley as I felt an affinity with a town that's main lifeblood industry had been dessimated, I ... Read the complete review

I am from Barnsley and apart from a little nannying in Southampton I have lived here for all of my 32 years. I wouldn?t want to live anywhere else. Barnsley has the perfect mix of countryside and city. We are only an hour from the coast and 4 hours from London or Edinbrough A lot of people seem to slate Barnsley, yet we are all very friendly people (OK with the exception of a few dole wallers, lager louts and football hooligans) My job means that I speak to people from all over the country and they all say that the people in Barnsley are friendly, thoughtful and always willing to help. People who have heard the remarks are often amazed when they visit and see ... Read the complete review
