You Keep It All In Beautiful South
The most sought after locations to live across the country have been revealed and the results may surprise you...
The South East is the most desirable place to live, according to a new survey which saw locations such as Winchester, Oxfordshire and Hart dominate the top ten.
Shockingly, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland were left off the list entirely while Hambleton in North Yorkshire was the only Northern area to make the cut after landing a spot at 35.
Data from Halifax's Quality Of Life Survey For 2015 found that the best quality of life was in the South East, after 27 out of the 50 places mentioned on the list were located in that region.
The East of England claimed nine places in the top 50, while the West Midlands and the South West both had three places and the East Midlands had six places.
London managed to claim one spot on the list with Richmond-Upon-Thames landing a spot at 22.
Coming up trumps for it's fifth consecutive year was Hart in Hampshire, which was praised for having the best quality of life over anywhere else in the country.
The area scored highly across a number of categories including residents’ health and life expectancy, personal well-being, employment, crime rates and weather.
Outside of the top 50, Monmouthshire in Wales was named as the district with the best quality of life - placed at 61 in the overall UK rankings.
In Scotland, the Orkney Islands came out top, and was ranked at 83 in the overall survey, while Mid Ulster in Northern Ireland just managed to landed a spot at 168 overall.
