Best Place to Live and Work

Cambridge_Grand_ArcadeWe all knew it, but now it’s semi-official: Cambridge is the best place to live and work in England.

According to the think tank Centre for Cities, Cambridge ranks top across several different metrics for pleasant living – lowest inequality, highest proportion of residents with high-level qualifications, lowest proportion of residents with no formal qualifications, fastest rising house prices (is that good?), most punt touts, most affable dukes, etc. – and when all the numbers are crunched together, Cambridge comes out top, just ahead of London and, er, Aldershot.

Have a look at the Centre for Cities report here.

The best thing about living in Cambridge, which the report doesn’t seem to mention (I’ve only glanced at it), is its traversability – it’s flat and small, hence you can get across it on a bike. And of course, it’s not Aldershot.
