The Best Places To Live In Britain

20. CITY OF LONDON

It'll come as no surprise that the main reason London features anywhere near the top 20 is

because of earnings. The average weekly earnings for the City of London stand at £1,106 per

week, compared to the UK average of £646 per week. However, those living in the City of

London have some of the smallest homes in the UK, with less than four habitable rooms,

compared to the UK average of 5.5.

19. HORSHAM

Horsham in West Sussex has dropped four places this year to secure 19th place. People living

here enjoy above average earnings, employment, life expectancy, broadband and life

satisfaction. However, the area generally scores less well on education with GCSE passes

lower than the national average.

18. SHETLAND ISLANDS

The Scottish Shetland Islands have bounced up to the top 20 this year, with the highest

employment rate in the UK. At 89.4%, the islands' residents are significantly more likely to

land themselves a job than the rest of the UK, where the rate stands at just 73.7%.

17. WAVERLEY

The district of Waverley in Surrey has a few large towns including Godalming, Farnham and

Haslemere. Although the area's employment rate levels fluctuate, it does well in all other

categories, especially broadband where almost every home has a broadband speed of more

than 2Mbps.

16. SOUTH NORTHAMPTONSHIRE

This district, which is home to the Silverstone Formula One race track, has fallen two places

since last year, and nine places since the year before. The area still performs above average

when it comes to weekly earnings, employment and life expectancy but it was less impressive

on education.

15. WEST DORSET

The district of West Dorset, which includes towns such as Dorchester, Sherborne, Birdport

and Beaminster, jumped up 19 places this year from position 34 in 2015. It is also ranked as

the best place to retire to, due to high life expectancy, good health and general affluence.

This Kent district has continually jumped up the table over the past two years, as it was at 42

in 2014, up to 29 in 2015, and now up to 14th. The area isn't cheap to live in, but its residents

are some of the happiest across the nation.

13. SOUTH OXFORDSHIRE

South Oxfordshire has dropped 11 places this year, after it took second place in last year's

survey. The area, which includes Wallingford and Henley on Thames, boasts higher than

beaches.

11. WEST OXFORDSHIRE

West Oxfordshire has also made it into the top 20 this year, after previously failing to appear

anywhere near the top 50. The district, which includes towns such as Burford (pictured),

of life and picturesque landscapes.

10. CHILTERN

The district of Chiltern in Buckinghamshire is the 10th best place to live for quality of life

the top areas for property size with an average of 6.4 rooms versus the UK average of 5.5 and

was also top for female life expectancy, with women here living until the ripe old age of 86.7

on average, compared to 83.2 across the UK.

8. ST ALBANS

People living in this charming commuter town enjoy better than average earnings,

employment, education and low crime levels. It also has the one of the highest proportions of

adults with higher level qualifications such as a degree and recorded the third highest-paid

residents in the UK with average weekly earnings at £1,018 per week.

7. PURBECK

This Dorset region, which is home to Corfe Castle, Wool, Swanage and Bovington, scored

seventh place this year, after not making the top 50 last year. Much like the rest of Dorset,

Purbeck is popular for retirees and families alike, as it is one of the safest, most affluent and

picturesque areas in the UK.

6. SOUTH CAMBRIDGESHIRE

South Cambridgeshire has moved up three places since 2015. The area is the top performing

region for the East of England with residents here enjoying above average earnings,

employment, life expectancy and personal wellbeing. However, it had the lowest level of fast

broadband speeds in 2015, with 72% of homes enjoying a good speed compared to 87%

nationally. It was also let down by below average GCSE scores at 64% compared to 68.6%

UK-wide.

The area of Hambleton in the North East of England is home to the likes of Thirsk, Kilburn,

Easingwood and Northallerton. It has soared 30 places this year up to number five, after

3. WYCHAVON

The third best place to live in the UK is this Worcestershire district, which includes the towns

of Pershore, Droitwich Spa and Evesham. It boasts the highest number of health

and fitness clubs in the land – 3.5 per 10,000 adults – which is perhaps why it scores highly

on personal wellbeing and life expectancy.

2. ORKNEY ISLANDS

Soaring from 83rd position last year to second position this year, the Orkney Islands in

Scotland have the lowest burglary rate in the UK and people have the lowest level of anxiety,
