If you’re too high brow to snigger at Cockfosters, then chances are you’re going to be too high brow for these too (you’re also probably a really rubbish person but we’ll let that slide). These are all real places in real locations in London; nothing has been photoshopped and if you type them into CityMapper and follow the instructions, you will end up there (and then probably turn around and go straight back home again). Oh the joys of the English language…
1. Cock Lane, EC1
No but someone actually lives here.
2. Bird In Bush Road, SE15
Just so suggestive… And we still haven’t really worked out why.
3. Bellenden Road, SE15
You can’t be serious.
4. Hookers Road, E17
Some people just really like front row rugby union positions. That, or….
5. Fanny Hands Land
An Edward Scissor Hands sequel?
6. Clitterhouse Road, NW2
How this one ever got past the Cricklewood council, we do not know.
7. Beaver Close, SE20
This seemed like such a good idea in the 1970s.
8. Helmet Row, EC1
Bringing back bad childhood memories to insecure young boys everywhere…
9. Back Passage, EC1
GREAT tip: surprise trips down here will guarantee a good end to any date.
10. Swallow Street, W1
“Mummy, what happens on Swallow Street?”
“It’s where baby birds come to play, darling. Baby birds.”
