2. Where the people are friendly and take no guff.

3. We like to take it easy.

Loving this opening hours shop sign #onlyinglastonbury#

4. And take life in stride.

Hahaha! I love it! Two guys just casually parked their tractor outside to pop into the dentists! #onlyinSomerset

5. Where else would you find this meeting of worlds?

"Hey, Mr Darcy, this the road to Glastonbury man?" #OnlyinBath

6. Or this park notice?


7. The people there are an eco-friendly lot.


8. Concerned with preserving the best of British traditions.

Brilliant idea for retention of iconic British history: well done @WeLoveBath @bathnes

9. Why wouldn't you want to live here?

Best village name ever! XD #OnlyInDorset

10. Our cuisine is excellent, despite what naysayers may come out with.

11. The architecture is pretty nifty too.

Only in Bath would you find a gargoyle wearing shades. #bath #walcot

12. As is the homespun entertainment.

13. Take a look at these ace tributes to Terry Pratchett for example.

14. Yes, there's the occasional dastardly villain.


@ThePoke @DamonBrown01 Yes Devon, is a special place ... #OnlyinDevon

15. And the slightly unruly wildlife.

Slow news day in Devon today eh @campervanliving - best place in the world #onlyindevon

16. And residents' knack for hyperbole.

One of our officers was flagged down by a bus driver today, claiming to have seen a 6ft crocodile under Coronation Bridge. We can't find it.

17. The South West is a land to behold.
