Funny and Rude Place Names in the UK - silly street and road names

Updated on January 4, 2013

Why?

I thought you might all like a little giggle! And some times we are all like children and find rude things just a little funny, so these street names and places in the UK might just get you going!

There have been a number of stories on the Beeb website this week about two towns called Dull and Boring twining up to help with tourism efforts. So I thought I would go on a little internet search and see what silly names I could find in the UK. I know there are lots in the US but they are a bit harder to come across in the UK.

These are the places I have found so far, although I will update them as and when I come across others as I know there are lots more out there.

      Oh that's an unfortunate house name! Never mind at least it was just rented. Glad you enjoyed the hub

      We drove through Dull once, it has an Adventure Centre! This hub made me think of our first home when we married - Slack House Cottage. It was rented so we couldn't change the name. Oh well. Funny hub, thanks.

      A lot of councils are now banning new streets from having rude names, most of them are really old and weren't rude when they were named. I think they are brilliant!

      Very childish, very funny! Perhaps this could form a new challenge, see how many of these places could be visited in a day?

      Cheers

      Hiya Daisydayz, lol still laughing here. Thanks for making me laugh today. Next time I visit the UK, I will be very careful walking along Shitterton, so I don't step on something stinky. I might visit Penistone and Wetwang though. Those names are hilarious. Voted up and shared. Titty Ho!

      Have a nice day,

      Rosie

      Ha..ha..ha...this is hilarious! Here in Canada, we have some silly street names too, like AVENUE Road in Toronto, BASTARD WARD, Town of Rideau Lakes, Ottawa and in some places that I've been like, INTERCOURSE in Pennsylvania, USA, there is ANUS in France and in England, there is NO PLACE in Durham. I enjoyed reading your hub.

      Great hub! It tickled me and reminded me of where I used to go to school in wales, 'three cocks'. Maybe that should be included in the list! :) Up and Funny.
