17 Of The Rudest Place Names In Britain And Where To Find Them

The UK is a goldmine for rude place names - and anyone with a basic sense of humour.

A selection of rude place names from across the UK.

Britain has a long and distinguished history of giving inappropriate names to things.

It’s part of what makes the UK such a source of constant amusement and no where is this more evident than in some of the places found up and down the country.

Obviously these places earned their names in entirely different times when these words may have, perhaps, meant something different. But that doesn’t stop them being hilarious today.

Here are just 17 of the rudest place names in the UK and where to find them.
