Just thought I'd ask because yesterday I had to go to Salisbury for a dental appointment. I couldn't BELIEVE the number of people wondering around. I know lots of them were probably tourists but our schools haven;t even broken up yet, so I'd hate to go there in August!! It was just unbearable. I was trying to find somewhere to grab a bite to eat - there are loads of cafes in Salisbury but they were all full to bursting. Just spent my time trying to avoid being mown down on the pavements by all the mobility scooters, not to mention being barged into by the morbidly obese women pushing their buggies around. I did eventually find somewhere to eat but I just found the whole thing unbearable - too overcrowded, too noisy, too many people. Morbidly obese woman at the table next to me had her brood in tow so lots of children crying, whingeing etc. All I wanted to do was to get out of there fast. And it's not just Salisbury; it seems everywhere is so overcrowded and stressful. I used to live in Salisbury about 8 years ago and I always loved it. Yes, it got busy in summer with the tourists, but it was never like this! All I could think was "this is hell on earth." The awful thing is, it will only continue to get worse. God help us when the population reaches 70m (it's probably there already).
