The Guildhall and its independent cinema. I'd miss the cathedral and Stroud Market and being so close to the Literary Festival but DEFINITELY the Guildhall.

[Error: unknown template qotd]The person I'd tell "I love you" would be my grandma (hey, didn't say the person had to still be alive). And I'd say "sorry" to Matthew.

[Error: unknown template qotd]As a private person myself, I would say that some parts of celebrities' lives should be off-limits. In this day and age, it can be difficult to keep some part of your life to yourself but I think you can still do it, provided that you don't SELL those parts of your life. If you advertise your children and your home and your sex life, people will think it's fair game to ask you about them and to invade those parts of your life in whatever way they see fit. If you guard those parts of your life and make sure that your friends and family know how to be on guard as well, it makes journalists' lives a lot harder and your life a lot easier. If you reach a certain level of fame, you'll always be recognised but that doesn't mean you have to give up a semblance of a normal life altogether. Look at Britney Spears, then look at Christina Aguilera. Of course, Britney had a very public meltdown but she'd already been living most of her life in the public years before that (it didn't help that she'd dated someone else who was famous for a number of years). Christina, on the other hand, seems very careful about press access to her husband and her baby and the rest of her life that doesn't include singing. Result: she's still married.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Ma chose francaise preferee, c'est dificile de choisir. C'est probablement le cinema francais, un style pensif et profond, mais avec un soupcon d'humour. Mon film francais prefere est "Orphee" par Jean Cocteau.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Well, in some ways that's easy because there isn't much to show them in Gloucester, haha, so I'll do the four UK towns I've lived in.

Gloucester
The cathedral (of course), Miller's Green (where they filmed the 2008 Doctor Who Christmas special, here's a shot of the entrance), and the surrounding area. It's the most beautiful part of Gloucester. I'd also show them the Docks and the Guildhall, which has a great cheap cinema.

Guildford
The High Street, the castle (well, more of a keep) and The Abbots Hospital, an almshouse that was built in the seventeenth century and is still going. To be eligible, you either have to be born in Guildford or you need to have lived there for... thirty years? Something like that.

Salisbury
The cathedral, again, you can't NOT see the cathedral if you come to Salisbury, it's the only reason the city exists in the first place. The Cathedral Close in general, which is utterly beautiful. I always try and go there when I visit the padres, brings me back to my school days (I walked through the close to get to my Spanish A-Level class.) Hmm, what else? Harnham is pretty, and maybe Old Sarum. Stonehenge if they were really eager to see it, though I prefer Avebury, bigger and quieter.

Canterbury
Everything. :D
