Up town or down town.

Recommended Posts

its down town in Sheffield cus we all live on the hills above it

 

Can you go down town from Heeley Bottom :confused:

 

Wherever I've lived it's always been 'into town' (with the exception of London, where I always wanted to get out of town).

Because up city and down city sounds stupid.

 

How come buses only use 'city' or 'city centre' though? I always think of a 'town' as being somewhere like Chesterfield. Whereas Sheffield will always be a 'city' to me.

For me its always been "up town" as i used to live south of the town centre when i lived down south :) .......and its town for me as sheffield isnt really a city, its just a very very large town :)

i would have thought that statement to be contradictory to your user name.

 

Why's that then?

Into town if its shopping or something but for a night out down town. Up town is a southern thing isnt it?
