    Have you visited? This is the official list of places with city status apparently:

    34 I think I've been to on that list, many of them because of football, the beauty of playing in all 4 leagues.

    48. Been to all the Northern Ireland ones, only Scottish one I can say for certain is Glasgow although I may have passed through more as a kid in the days when we used to catch the ferry to Northern Ireland from Scotland.

    Scotland is beautiful, as in NI.

    Edinburgh is my favourite city I’d say. Cardiff also nice.

    I travel a lot too, but it never seems to be big cities and tends to be out in the sticks or in smaller towns.

    A lot lower than I thought. I’ve actually been to more countries than I have UK cities.

    I've done 49 of those, never been to Northern Ireland which has a few on the list. Many of those have either been through business in the old days or following City !

    42 of them. Favourite places ? Glasgow,Carlisle, and London for the attractions. Most though for football matches. Loved Glasgow and really like Carlisle, stopped off there on way to Scotland. Inverness is a nice city too.

    Didn’t think much to Glasgow, just reminded me of every other big city. Edinburgh is great
