It’s been a tough old time as of late. If we’re all honest with ourselves it would be fair to say that 2020 wasn’t exactly the best year for us, and that we’d quite like to forget it and move on.
Well, thankfully, that dream is about to turn to a reality as the majority of restrictions on our lives in place since last March are slowly being lifted and we’re coming into the glorious British spring and summer.
Beer gardens, country houses, ice cream, city breaks, the beach, there are many reasons why we all appreciate a great British summer, and why we all think that Britain is one of the best places to live in the world.
All of those things and more are in abundance across north west England, and as the country starts to plan their next moves as we return to freedom, here’s five reasons we think the north west is the best place to live.
It could be, and will be, argued that Britain’s most beautiful scenery can be found in our fair part of the country.
We have the majesty of the Peak District, including beautiful towns like Bakewell, Buxton, Chapel-En-Le-Frith, and Castleton.
Picturesque areas can also be found all around the area, with Lancashire boasting some of the most stunning scenery in the country. All around Preston, Blackpool and the Lake District, north west England has one of the best collections of countryside anywhere in the world.
Consistently voted as an area of the world that has some of the most beautiful beaches, the North West boasts some of the UK’s favourite seaside spots including St Anne’s, Formby, Crosby, Blackpool, and Silverdale – all of which are in easy travelling distance of each other.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget that the North West has some of the best beaches in the country, and of course are constantly voted in the top ten anywhere in Europe.
The best cities
The North West also boasts some of the world’s most famous cities as well as some of the fastest growing and coolest cities anywhere in the world.
You won’t need us to tell you about the history, culture and music of Manchester and Liverpool, because their influence in these areas are already well-known. They’re also considered to be some of the coolest places to live in, with areas in both cities regularly voted the trendiest places to both visit and live in Europe.
It’s not just the bigger cities that are experiencing all the hype – smaller cities like Preston and Chester are also growing in popularity. These cities offer a great quality of life for their residents, with excellent job prospects and a thriving social scene.
Living in the north west
