Northampton is a large town in the centre of England. It is known as the native home of the "chav", as they crowd the entrance of the infamous and disgusting and grotty shopping centre and they spit at you when you try to enter. Not only do they swarm the town centre, they are popular on the Jeremy Kyle Show, and Big Fat Gypsy Wedding.
The bus station stinks of piss, and the stench knocks you out as you enter it. Not only is the smell of urine prominent, it is almost certain you will contract HIV or AIDS if you touch the handrail of the escalators.
All in all there are about four decent shops in the entire town, and it lacks any form of Starbucks. The council recently invested in a large fountain outside Burger King near the Market Square, but that had to be shut down as someone caught cholera from it or something. That basically sums up Northampton.
Standing on Abington Street in the town centre in a large group or lurking outside Topshop in the shopping centre is often considered a social event and on Saturdays it is not uncommon to witness the streets of the town centre being swarmed with crusty 10 year old prostitute look a likes, and even in the depths of winter all girls seem to feel the need to wear bum-cheek revealing shorts and crop tops and stand shivering in the market square shouting insults to passersby.
Also it is not uncommon for the girls share boys like a shisha.
As you can tell Northampton is often overcome with tourists no matter what time of year.

Large industrial town in the center of England. In the past Northampton has had a rich history and also was the site of one of the key battles of the War of the Roses.
Now sadly Northampton has changed. It has become a townie ( read definition) breeding ground, and is a dangerous place for any who do not follow their way of life.
We Northamptonians seem to have a mild accent compared to other areas but still seem to make our a's sound more like ey. The older natives of Northampton and the surrounding area have a tendancy to call people "me duck" pronounced "meh duck".
Northampton is rapidly expanding and has a strong rivalry with nearby town Milton Keynes.
The townie population of Northampton, who also happen to make up a large amount of Northampton Town FC "the cobblers" supporters. Being sadly lacking in intellingence for the most part, these people now despise any who live in the towns of Millwall, Peterborough, Rushden (strong hatred there) and pretty much any town with a football team in the same division as them.
Nightime in Northampton is not glamourous, but the townies and the closely related, but generally richer and better looking "trendies" see it as the highlight of their lives. Scores of young girls, wearing pink short skirts, skimpy black tops and stumbling around half drunk laughing their heads off at something as insignifficant as tripping on a curb can be seen.
Males often and try and gel their hair into some form of modern style, regardless of receeding hairline. They mainly wear Ben Sherman clothing and many will wear much smaller versions of what the townies refer to as "bling".
Northampton does have its class divisions, with those living in the outskirting villages or living in the newer areas of town tend to look down on the more "established" areas of Northampton and all those who live there.
General conversation of teenagers in Northampton...
"What ya doin' Saturday?"
"Goin town, you?"
"Same mate, what ya gonna be doin'?"
"Not much, stand around wif me mates for a bit, maybe get pissed in the afternoon"
"Safe mate"

The county seat of Hampshire County in Western Massatchusetts. Northampton is the home of Smith College, one of America's first women's colleges. Perhaps because of the large number of college students persuing liberal arts majors, the city has a fairly free, artistic spirit to it. Politically, Northampton is mostly liberal, with a few leftists, and is one of the most gay-friendly cities in the region. Because of this, and because of the presence of a women's college, the city has gained a reputation as a city overrun with angry lesbians with numerous tattoos and crew cuts. Though there are many LGTB individuals living in Northampton, this rumor is somewhat of an exageration.

Northampton is dominated by a wide array of restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and a few places where they sell insanely expensive jewelery and glassware, obviously catering to the growing trend of gentrification that threatens to eradicate the town's original spirit.

I'll be in Northampton for the rest of the evening, me and Louie are going to Thornes to pick up tickets for the ska show at Pearl Street.

A town in Pennsylvania. It is hell above ground, with crowded streets, shitty coffee, bad tattoo places, and a horrible highschool that is undergoing a 7-year rennovation.

Still, Northampton is the badass of the tri-county area. The school district takes students expelled from other schools and assimilates them. It also has a rapidly expanding drug community.
Northampton is a fucking hell hole.
