Where is the best place to live in the UK?

Thu 18 Dec 2014


It is undoubtedly tricky to pinpoint the perfect place to live, with everybody seeming to rate different factors as the most important in their search for a new home.

With this in mind, you might wish to take into consideration the expert opinion of the Daily Telegraph, which has announced the winners of its Travel Awards 2014 – including the names of the UK’s finest cities.

The good news is that several of the top ten destinations for a new home boast at least one Leaders branch, meaning we can help to put you in touch with a selection of great properties to rent in the greatest cities the country has to offer.

Norwich was identified as one place that has plenty to offer, with the East Anglian city known for its picturesque setting with the backdrop of the beautiful River Wensum making it a pleasant spot to spend some time.

With its castle dating back to the days of William the Conqueror, there is no shortage of history and tradition in this part of the world.

Another charming city to be named in the top ten is Oxford, which blends medieval charm with the buzz and thrill of a world-class modern city. Recognised as the home of one of the world’s top universities, as well as Inspectors Morse and Lewis, Oxford has something to offer people from every walk of life.

What’s more, it is a base for companies in a range of sectors – from science to literature, politics and technology – so there are many employment opportunities for residents.

Another city to receive the thumbs-up from the newspaper is Oxford’s fellow university hotspot Cambridge. From the art on show at the Fitzwilliam Museum to the sound of Kings College Choir, the city is undoubtedly one of the country’s cultural capitals.

And talking of capitals, London was named by the publication as the number one city in the UK.

It is no surprise to learn one of the world’s most popular and ambitious cities has taken the crown, so all that remains is for those who want to be a part of it to find a property to rent in London and make the most of life there.
