Burford, the tiny Oxfordshire town named as one of the Most Idyllic Places on the planet
Set on a steep hill leading down to the River Windrush, Burford has a fine collection of topsy turvy cottages, ancient stone townhouses and a host of tea rooms and antique shops. Burford gets pretty busy but its picture postcard streets are well worth it and if you wander off down the laneways you'll be transported back in time. There's an excellent garden centre on the outskirts and the lovely Cotswold Wildlife Park just down the road.

Taken of The Crescents, Hulme, Manchester. 19th century slums were cleared out to create this giant housing estate, but design problems caused them to become unpopular, and they were made adults-only because of the dangerous balconies. Apparently taken over by countercultural types in the 80s and even used for club nights. More, fascinating info on Wikipedia.
