    The longest place name in the world is

    Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapiki maungahoronukupokaiwhenua kitanatahu,

    in the Hawke?s Bay.

    Even puts our Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysilio gogogoch to shame.

    When I was young ... I am pretty sure there was a record with that place name in it. Probably the NZ charts, rather than UK. [smiley=icon_biggrin.gif] Certainly was not one we could easily sing along with.
