If you happen to notice an influx of English, Irish, Welsh and Scottish accents in Fremont over the course of the next 6-12 months, you can probably thank the BBC for it’s story on Fremont that’s currently featured on their homepage.

The article is a rundown of Fremont for tourists who might be interested in stopping by on their trip to Seattle.

This neighbourhood, less than five miles north of the heart of downtown Seattle, continues its legacy of public art, everyday weirdness, and off-the-wall-events inclined towards nudity and costumes. Yet its popularity, soaring rent prices, new luxury condos, and inundation of high tech company offices have transformed it into something a tad different than its tie-dyed forefathers and mothers anticipated.

Fair enough.

They also name-check the Fremont Sunday Market, Hub and Bespoke, Flying Apron Bakery, Uneeda Burger, Brouwer’s Cafe, ETG Cafe and hey, this blog! The post itself comes courtesy of Lonely Planet, though with all of the Brits currently planning to visit us now, I don’t think we’ll be too lonely in our own little universe for long.
