Top 4 Places to Live in the UK

As a result of the recent economic crisis, the housing market has remained stagnant for quite some time. But, that all seems set to change as house prices have been steadily increasing over recent months. This has encouraged more people to ‘pick-up sticks’ in search of a better home and a better standard of living. So, if you’re planning on relocating to another part of the UK, you may want to consider moving to one of the following places. Each one has something unique to offer and so it’s of little wonder that they continue to be some of the most popular places to live in the UK.

Cirencester, Gloucestershire

The Cotswold district is an area of outstanding beauty. Cirencester, being the largest town, sits nestled between the slopes of the Cotswold hills. It’s the largest town in the district. It offers a unique blend of stunning architecture, breathtaking views as well as modern amenities. This area provided J K Rowling with the inspiration for the Harry Potter books. She grew up in nearby Wotton-under-Edge, and the Cotswold town of Dursley was used as a family’s surname in the series.



Tunbridge Wells, Kent

Also known as ‘The Garden of England’, Kent offers rolling green countryside and hop gardens and orchards for as far as the eye can see. It’s also one of the warmest parts of Britain. It was in Kent, just outside of Faversham, where the highest ever temperature in the UK was recorded. In the August of 2003, the temperature reached a staggering 38.5 degrees celsius. If you’re the ‘outdoorsy’ type, Kent provides the perfect backdrop for all kinds of outdoor activity. This includes walking, mountain biking, swimming and sailing. Checking out estate agents in Gorleston will give you a good indication as to

what the current local market has to offer.



Bath, Somerset

Bath became a ‘World Heritage Site’ back in 1987. And with cultural attractions such as the Roman Baths, Lansdown Crescent and Royal Victoria Park, it can be of little surprise. It has excellent commuter links to London and nearby Bristol. And as well as offering all modern amenities and a host of independent shops, it also holds its own festivals. These include the annual Bath International Music Festival and the Bath Beer Festival.



Truro, Cornwall

This area proves particularly popular among young families. And with its idyllic setting and coastal views it can be of little wonder. If you fancy life by the seaside, Truro boasts a stunning Gothic-revival cathedral, as well as a diverse range of independent shops and eateries. It has a good selection of local schools and continues to be popular among both tourists and home-buyers alike.



Whether you have a young family or are just looking to start again, each of these towns offers a lifestyle that make them great places to live as well as being tourist hotspots. So, if you’re ready for a change and to embrace a new style of living, get yourself down to your local estate agents and make it happen!
