The edge of the world. Yes, really.
I think the greatest City in the Disc deserves it's own Chrons topic, don't you?

From the Shades to the Tower of Art, via all sorts of disreputable establishments, Ankh-Morpork is a true marvel of modern fiction in any genre.

Ankh-Morpork is twinned with Wincanton

Ankh-Morpork is indeed one of the best cities I have come across. I'm not sure I'd like to walk its streets alone but if it was possible to go there it would be very interesting I'm sure.

I think I would most like to visit Unseen University, and check out their library. Maybe they will let me borrow a few choice books, you never know :)

Be careful of the Unseen University library, you might get trapped in L-Space!

I'm old school. Although Ankh-Morpork does have its charms, I prefer Lankhmar. Although I would probably be ill-advised to walk the streets of either. :)

Pah. For really interesting books, check out Miskatonic University. :)
