The Best Place To Live In Britain
New report reveals highest standards of living IF YOU were to conjure up a vision of the most exquisite town in Britain you might imagine a place with a flourishing street market overlooked by a magnificent medieval castle, a bustling wharf with a converted mill and neatly painted barges, cobbled streets and top schools.
The fact is that nearly 15,000 people already call this wonderful place home and now Skipton in North Yorkshire has achieved national attention as it has just been named the best place in the UK to live.
"To describe Skipton as a hidden gem wouldn't be doing it justice, as thousands of visitors have already discovered," says Dave Wathen, chairman of Skipton Business Improvement District.
