Sunday Times nominates York – ‘Best Place To Live 2018’
Described by the Sunday Times as the ‘perfect mix of heritage and hi-tech’, York’s historic beauty, friendly people, ultra low crime rate, cosmopolitan cafe culture and fast-emerging business sector are to name-but-a-few of the reasons that the Sunday Times has named the city as the ‘Best Place to Live In The UK 2018’.
Proud to be part of the city and to be working with investors who are migrating to York in search of their next opportunity, this accolade only confirms what we have been saying to our clients for many months and years.
Whilst the history of the city and its architecture play a major role in attracting people to study, live and work here – named as the UK’s first Gigabit-city, York is certainly keeping ahead of many other locations when it comes to infrastructure. York can boldly claim to provide high-speed internet connections throughout the city, making it one of the fastest emerging cities in terms of technology in the UK.
The transport network and links continue to be advanced which always helps. After all making it easy for people to get to us as well as travel to other locations, whether it be for work or pleasure, is one of the most essential factors that anyone has to consider when deciding where they are going to live or work. An equally important factor when identifying a suitable location for your next investment property.
Often willing to pay for the privilege to live in this beautiful city, whether tenants are looking to work for a well-renowned business offering good career prospects, have children and are coming to the city to ensure they receive the best possible education, or simply want to spend their time enjoying the lifestyle and beauty that the city so uniquely offers, it appears that York has been officially placed on the map as a hotspot to live in the UK.
