Question: Wallace's briefcase has a sticker upon it saying: Blackpool, Bognor and Beaconsfield. To what do they refer?

Bunch

Chosen answer: Bognor Regis and Blackpool are seaside towns, so presumably, those are places Wallace and Gromit have been on holiday in the past. Beaconsfield is an inside joke: It's where the National Film and Television School is located and a number of scenes were filmed there.
