Flattest place to live in GB.

Cardiff. Turning into a gentrified shithole, but we have lots of diversity, and hipsters, and people walking around holding paper coffee cups (some of them, strangely, don't look like tramps).

Also, you'll see grown men in their twenties riding skateboards and those scooter things with two wheels (you know, like the one you have when you were 5 y/o)
How much napalm does the nation hold?
 
Romney Marsh.

Flat.

Dungeness Nuclear Power Station.

A canal.

A little railway.

Sheep.

A smaller gene pool than Norfolk.

Unfortunately it's still above sea level. But it's flat.
 
Maybe try starting a new thread on Tripadvisor? There were a few suggestions some years ago, although the thread topped out at 10 posts... Suggestions were: York, Cambridge, Norwich, Canterbury, Weston-Super-Mare, Tenterden,
Wheelchair friendly towns - England Message Board - TripAdvisor

A few more here: England’s most accessible cities | Monarch Mobility

Top wheelchair and scooter friendly towns across the UK | Motability Scheme

The trouble with a lot of articles on wheelchair friendly towns is that they are for holidays rather than actually living there. If a place is flat and easy to run it might be reasonable for a wheelchair? The 10 Flattest Marathons in the UK

Cities which are good for cycling, low pollution and good at repairing potholes might also be good for wheelchairs? The ones that are crap for cycling are unlikely to be good for wheelchairs?

You are comparing Dinger to cyclerists? How very dare you, Cad.

Mk city, twinned with Telford in Shropshire, boring, bland, featureless, with row upon row of little rabbit hutch boxes, called houses, where 2.4 children P/Household evolve from snotty nosed brats to foul mouthed chavs, Its where the Stepford wives format originated, allegedly, its where elephants go to die, vultures refuse to hover overhead, to be avoided, like Croydon, or parts of Birmingham, its where the northern sewage system meets the southern criminal element. secret files reveal that UK government have given permission to the USA to test all new bomber carried ordnance on MK city, and the Russians and north Korea will shortly be testing new NBC formulas there, all with government, and Porton Down approval,....... and that's just its good points!
Generally speaking Milton Keynes is ok, I spent my secondary school years living there. The nicer estates and the older towns (Brownswood, Shenley Church End, Loughton, Willen, Milton Keynes Village, Stony Stratford & Old Wolverton) are spot-on. Avoid the likes of Bletchley, Newport Pagnell, Fishermead, Coffee Hall and any estates close to the city centre.

It's easy to get around on a chariot, there's smooth public footpaths (the redway system) literally everywhere, and you tend to get gentle slopes rather than proper hills. Given that it's a (relatively) new city it's been built with disabled access in mind.

You're 40 minutes by train from Euston, and about the same from Birmingham. If you drive, there's good connections to the A5 & M1, the M25 is a half hour drive south.

IMO, the nightclubs in MK are shite, but there's some very good pubs around the place, there's good local services, and a reasonable sized ex-mil community around the place.

There's far, far worse places than MK.

Hythe is nicer and almost as flat. As long as you stay on the flat bit, obvs.

And you get to hear rifle & MG fire , all the time.

Too close to Folkestone. By far.
Nah, Folkestone's lovely. Been here 14 years; as long as you don't go into the town centre you're fine.

But hilly.

It's better than Dover. But that sets a low bar.

It was leaving school and working in Folkestone that made me join the Army...
It was leaving the Army and working in London that has made living in Folkestone so attractive...
