Stoke-on-Trent in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... their 'ASBO tags' with great pride. BNP and The English and Welsh Defence have a stronghold on the city but that's just ignorance and naivity bred into people that have had a hard time socially and economically and 'vultures' such as the local councillors, mayor's, politicians use this as a tool for their own unscrupulous gains. The nightlife is gerenrally bleak in comparison to most big cities with Hanley and Newcastle under Lyme being most popular with a few nice bars but no decent clubs. However, Stoke has brothels in abundance, just drive through Fenton for evidence of this. Regardless of all this 'brutal' honesty Stoke is still ... more

It's very easy to talk from either perspective whether your extremely suppportive or in most cases about Stoke, extremely unsupportive. However, i'm going to try and be as honest as possible. I now live in Ilkley, West Yorkshire and glad i moved away from Stoke-on-Trent to 'open my eyes'! I live in a former Victorian hospital and teach at a grammar school. Unfortunately, Stoke is two decades behind most cities in many aspects. Corrupt council members, politicians and mayor's have all succeeded in milking the little regenration funds they had. Buildings are severely run down and generally ugly. Most girls are pregnant with atleast one child by 16 and boys ... Read the complete review

I moved here almost two years ago from Stafford, i must say its very run down. Alot of people here claim jobseekers and those who do have jobs are asked to work for the minimum by there employers in my view. It's a BNP stronghold, where you are in a minority if you support other political parties. The council are awful, they were the last council in Britain to put the smoking ban through and didnt manage it in time, so you could still legally smoke indoors a month after everywhere else. The pottery industry has dried up, only really leaving HR Johnsons as a main producer. Festival park, which is great for shopping in the day, has been given a special police 'ASBO' area ..

I left having lived there all my life and thought I would miss my hometown. I don't.Whenever I go back there from Leeds the whole place just seems small minded, run down, insular and rertarded.I hate Stoke on Trent for cursing me with this accent too - OK parts of Yorkshire's accents arent great but Leeds is just fine.Also a point about the weather in Stoke is somehow always awful too.No nightlife, and few enough saving graces to make up for a dull area. Sorry Stokies, glad I escaped and there is no way I will be coming back to this uninspiring place.My advice to young people - get out and discover the other great cities and lifestyles where cultures mingle in greater harmony and have your eyes opened. You'll be shocked at first but realisation will soon dawn .Rob Berry

I was first introduced to Stoke-on-Trent when I was about 9 years old when my mom and dad would insist on taking me and my sister Sam to get pottery from there. Then when I was at school we were taken to water world for school trips. Then I went to university in Stoke so lived there for 3 years. Now my boyfriend lives there so I still go every weekend so this review will show you realistically what a visit to Stoke would be like (good and bad points). Stoke-on-Trent is a huge place and is made up of 6 towns which are Stoke, Hanley, Fenton, Tunstall, Burslem and Longton. Like everywhere it has its good and bad points. ----- Good ...
