Tunbridge Wells has been named the ﬁfth happiest place to live in the UK by a recent survey. Property agents Rightmove conducted the research, quizzing 17,000 people about why they love where they live. People answered questions about their hometowns, and places were marked on community spirit, feeling safe, the friendliness of locals, the amenities and local services available and earning enough to live comfortably.
Among the top ten towns, four were spa towns, including Royal Leamington Spa, Harrogate and Epsom. Tunbridge Wells ranked ﬁfth, and is the only town in the South East to make the top ten list.
