What are the Best Places to Move to in the UK?

What are the Best Places to Move to in the UK?

If you’re feeling the itch to move away from your current location then you’ll want to do your research and find out the place to go that will bring you the most happiness. Of course, it’s entirely subjective on what kind of area you’d want to move to and is dependent on a variety of factors, however, we’ve got a handy list of the 5 top places to move to.

1. London

Said to be the most bustling and arguably most exciting place to live, London is of course going to be on the list. It can seem that everything is going on in London and everyone from around the globe is desperate for a visit if they’re coming to the UK, whilst people wanting to move might also have their sights on Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. Though it’s not for everyone, it’s got a huge amount of appeal and to top it off, it’s got the biggest population. The numbers speak for themselves – perhaps you’ll be joining them soon!

2. Harrogate

Another top pick for tourists is Harrogate. A popular spa town which has beautiful scenery and fantastic transport links. A telling poll by Right Move found it to be the happiest place to live, and it’s also been voted in the top 5 most romantic places in the world, so if you’re feeling like you need to escape and want a lovely place to settle down with your family or your partner, it could be just the destination for you.

3. Taunton

Another city which topped the Right Move lists is Taunton in Somerset. Known for having a rich military and religious history and with a number of public parks such as Vivary Park and Victoria Park, it’s no surprise that it did so well. It was ranked nationally at number 2 for decor, proving that people like to live in pretty areas, and it seems to be doing them good too.

4. Hampshire

If you’re looking to move somewhere tranquil and relaxing then Hampshire might be the perfect choice – the town of Hart was voted number one out of 50 in a poll run by This Is Money and confirmed that the residents have the best quality of life. Not only that, but it’s come top of this poll four years in a row, so it’s definitely doing a good job of staying on top.

5. Edinburgh


Last on the list, but certainly not least, is Edinburgh. Scotland’s capital city is full of beautiful scenery and some unmissable landmarks, such as Edinburgh Castle and Camera Obscura, a fascinating optical illusion. There is also a lively cultural scene including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival which brings in droves of creative types and is a must-attend if you’re in the area since there is something for everyone.
