    On the old hipforums, I asked for information about hip places in the U.K. since, if everything goes right, I'm going to the U.K. on vacation in September. I got some good suggestions of places to visit, but... I don't remember what the "hip" places in the U.K., so if possible, I'd like some suggestions of some worthwhile places to visit in the U.K. (I don't know if there's a British version of Haight-Asbury, but I hope there is).

    I've heard that Totnes in Devon is a very hip place. I've never been there, though.

    Stone Henge for the solstices would be a good place to try, it's a beautiful locaion even if you're not there for the pagan, new-age gathering. Glastonbury festival is a good place to meet hippies, even if it has become a little commercialised. Beautiful Days festival is probably your best bet though, on the 21st and 22nd of August this year, it's an annual hippy esque festival, very free spirited....

    where I go to university here in West Wales in a little town called Lampeter. Its small but it has its fair share of parties in the hills and hippies that live in houses in the middle of nowhere which are fun to walk to and then walk back again :) It is just grand!
