I am the only place in England whose name on a map ends with a grammatical symbol.

Where am I?

Isn't obvious that we can't figure it out

Read my posts. Read them very carefully.
When you figure out the clue I gave it'll be easy.

Cheeky bugger. Yes, but I actually need the name of the place in England (or you could search 'United Kingdom', either brings the same result).

Okay, its clear it has an exclamation point, but I'm still not using the right search terms.

The English town of Westward Ho!, named after the novel by Charles Kingsley, is the only place name in the United Kingdom that officially contains an exclamation mark. There is a town in Quebec called Saint-Louis-du-Ha! Ha!, which officially contains two exclamation marks in its name.

Well I feel dumb now.....this came from the "exclamation point" site on wikipedia....

Great job, BB! I never thought have doing an 'exclamation point' only search, and even though it would have turned up that article, I wouldn't have thought to read it!

Actually, my search was for "United Kingdom" and "exclamation point".... searching for "England" and "exclamation point" turned up pretty much nothing useful...
