If you use the Welsh versions there's no confusion.
Indeed, if you pronounce the English versions half-properly there's no confusion.
It'd be like getting Luton and London mixed up.
Such self awareness he doesn't seem to have worked out who the real idiot in this story is.
There is also the small matter of Caernarfon not having a train station.
The poor dear must be greatly baffled by the profusion of high streets throughout the land
This nob is like the "TV doctor" turned brextard MEP who complained about his place of work being in the location of his place of work. Tests both!

Richmond London v Richmond Yorkshire
How did she not realize that she was leaving London?
Or how did she not know the club she was going to see is in London?
Or was she too glued to a screen Instagraming and not look up to notice what was happening?
Or Southend-on-Sea and Southend on the Mull of Kintyre.
Or Lewis and Lewes.
or southend village (watch out for geese crossing the road)
My brother, in Central Station in Glasgow, once encountered a Japanese guy who was confusing the hell out of the ticket office because nobody could work out if he wanted to go to Galloway or Galway. His explanation that the place he wanted was near the "Wall of Joy" wasn't really helping. *Sort of* entertaining for those queuing behind him but not much, I imagine.
This Wall of Joy, I think, featured in some graphic novel or a film or I-have-no-idea-what-and-neither-did-anyone-else. So brother dragged him off to tourist office who were also mystified and said he might as well stay in Glasgow that night and start the quest again in the morning, then to a pub, then to a youth hostel, where he was quickly adopted by a bunch of merry Australians heading out for the evening. I hope he had a good evening altogether but I do wonder what this mysterious Wall of Joy was.
I just want to say that I have "liked" every post in this thread.
That is all. Goodnight.
How dare they have more than 5 place names in this little backwards corner of England?
One of my former colleagues at a bus company in the potteries area told me that (as a driver) he did the Derby to Longton (south east corner of stoke-on-trent) route among others. Unfortunately, one evening he got a passenger from Derby on the last bus of the day who it turned out had wanted Long Eaton, a few miles in the opposite direction from Derby...
I would love that damn idiot in the OP to get all confused between Falkland and the Falklands/Malvinas.
The number of people we get at Edgeware Station when they wanted Edgware Road Station.
It's close though yeah?
We used to live in Bethlehem, but in Dyfed. We even had a stable. Nobody was fooled for a moment.
On holiday in Weymouth one year, an Irish guy with wife and 5 kids, asked us if we knew where the holiday park he had booked was, in Great Yarmouth.
I was once disappointed not to find a beach in Clapton.
true story: i know somebody who moved from Rainham (Essex) to Rainham (Kent).

As for moaning about place names being similar - Check properly before you travel - Job done
