Great Britain is home to a number of towns with very odd names. That got us thinking: What if you planned a trip across Britain to visit only towns with silly names? And what if you did activities that matched the names of the silly towns? This would mean you visited the towns literally.

What follows is a prospective literal road trip across Britain through towns with odd names. Undertake this journey if yeh dare. (And if yeh dare, tell us how it goes.)

2. Next, travel to Bath to take a bath at the roman baths.

3. Afterward, head west and ride a donkey in Donkey Town.

5. And spend the night in Great Snoring, Norfolk.
