Where would you twin your town with?

Blackpool Tower and the Statue of Liberty

Swindon has made history by becoming the first town in the world to be twinned with Disney Land.

So, where is your town twinned with? Have you ever been there?

If your town's not twinned, where would you like it to share a link with, and why? Perhaps there's somewhere you've been on holiday, or somewhere you'd like to know more about?

Would you like to twin Rotherham with Rome, Torquay with Tokyo or Newcastle with New York?
