‘Desirable’: Phil Spencer shares best UK places to live in for ‘great life satisfaction’


Many homeowners’ needs and wants have shifted since the pandemic started, with the shift to home working here to stay. With demand for housing still high, property expert Phil Spencer, known for shows such as Location, Location, Location, has shared the most “desirable” areas to live in the country.

In a recent video for Move iQ, the expert explained: “The shift to home working means that many of us are longer tied to commuting daily and that may offer the chance to move out of high price areas and seek a better quality of life and perhaps a bigger home.

“With this in mind we’ve rated the most desirable places to live in post-pandemic Britain and 1,400 towns and cities were ranked for a number of factors.”

Areas were ranked on their crime rates, community attractions as well as things like the air quality.

Phil explained that Bath, Somerset, came out on top.
