According to Channel 4’s ‘UK’s Best Places to Live’ programme aired on 21st February, Warwick district has been named as one of the top places to live in the UK. In the rankings the Warwick district made it into the top 10, being named as the 8th best place to live.

For this documentary Sarah Beeny travelled extensively throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, looking for the places in the UK that offered the best quality of life for those aged between 20 and 29 years. Her choices were based on a range of data, including earnings, job prosperity, housing, child care, health and more.

Creative director Helen Veale said: “There’s never been such an incredible wealth of data available on every aspect of life in Britain and [UK’s Best Places to Live] reveals some unexpected truths about every region of the UK and provides useful evidence for anyone thinking of relocating.”

Andrew Mobbs, leader of Warwick District Council, said: “Warwick district is one of the top places to live for people aged 0 to 109, not just for people aged 20 to 29. This is because we benefit from such wonderful towns, heritage, parks and gardens and, of course, we have a thriving local economy. There are also a number of business headquarters in the district as well as employment opportunities for young people….”
