The Best Place To Live In The UK
Epsom & Ewell is the finest place to reside in the United Kingdom. That's according to a Channel 4 survey in Britain, which showed the top and bottom 10 places to live in the UK. Things like lifestyle, education and environment were taken into account, and this beautiful area came out on top. Epsom is famous for its world-renowned racing venue, and the quality of life was generally superb.
Despite its hideous crime rate and appalling school performances, the London borough of Westminster was second (there’s just so much to do!). Perhaps the surveyors had seen some of the beautiful properties featured on Eye On London, my very own feature of some of London’s hottest pads, here on Luxist.
At the bottom of the list was Kingston-upon-Hull. In a word- ugh. Nottingham, which I had outrightly predicted to come first, weighed in second.
Many of the most beautiful places to live were “commuter areas”, within an hour or two of London but at the same time enjoying the pleasures of rural living.
It was unsurprising that plenty of wealth was evident in the top ten towns. Investors in Nottingham however, were advised to buy a bulletproof vest before moving there.
