Where is the happiest place to live?…
Each year we ask thousands of people across Great Britain how they feel about where they live, and this year’s Happy at Home study was completed by over 26,000 residents.
We can reveal that the borough of Richmond upon Thames in London has been crowned the happiest place to live by those that live there – the first time an area in the capital has taken the top spot. The city of Winchester in Hampshire is second, and Monmouth in Wales is third.
The results of this year’s study showed that the most important contributors to happiness were feeling a sense of pride, belonging and community. Access to green space and nature is also important to residents, with those living in a rural area near a national park, or an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, more likely to feel happy where they live.
