A recent survey by property portal Rightmove has revealed the top 100 happiest places to live in the UK, and we're excited to see Tunbridge Wells (where we have one of our main depots) appear right up there on the list!
Around 24,000 people took part in the survey, ranking the places they lived on 12 separate factors including community spirit, sense of belonging, friendliness of neighbours, affordability, green spaces, recreational activities and local services.
Top of the list was Essex seaside resort, Leigh-on-Sea. Residents scored their hometown highly when it came to community spirit, safety, sense of belonging and recreational activities. Scottish town Troon took the second place, and North Yorkshire’s Harrogate – which has topped the survey for the past three years – slipped into third place overall.
In Bournes Moves home region, the South East, Kent town Tunbridge Wells where one of our main depots is based was ranked the third happiest place to live in the region. Ashford and Hastings which neighbour our head office depot in Rye also featured on the list.
