Rude & Funny British place names

We have compiled a comprehensive list of the very best funny and rude British place names - see if you recognise them from anywhere!

When it comes to Britain, there is a surprising number of funny and rude places. For example, you have cock hill in London, Fanny barks in Durham, and one of our personal favourites, minge lane in Worcestershire. 

We imagine it’s quite a laugh for the local postman doing their rounds, no doubt discovering new and hilarious rude and funny UK place names - it’s the little things in life. However, we were curious as to what the most rude UK place names were, whether the award goes to a small village in Worcestershire or Cock bush avenue, also in London. So, to help answer our question, and to provide a good laugh, we’ve gathered together the ultimate list of rude and funny British place names, a mixture of old-timey English village and place names across the country.
