Edinburgh has just been named the best place to live in the UK, thanks to its low crime rate, cheap energy bills and disposable household income of £20,083 a year.
Which is the worst place to live in the UK? It’s Bradford, according to uSwitch’s Quality Of Life index.
The Yorkshire city won the not-so-coveted title for having the lowest gross disposable household incomes in the UK (£13,654 a year).
The cities were rated on the basis of salaries, shopping and fuel costs, working hours and life expectancy.
Ann Robinson, a spokesperson from uSwitch, said: “Edinburgh has long been a vibrant city with striking architecture and a world famous festival, all surrounded by stunning scenery.
“Now it’s official – Edinburgh is the best place to live in the UK.”
