At last, the rest of the UK now acknowledge what we have been saying for years – Wirral is a great place to live, work and bring up a family. With 3 spots in the top 10 in England we should be shouting more about the benefits of the area and not listening to the (mostly) southern types denigrating our peninsula.
Bebington in Merseyside is the most desirable place to live in England, according to a Royal Mail survey.
Royal Mail said the study, conducted by the Centre for Economic and Business Research, looked at green spaces, affordable housing and commuting times.
Seven northern locations, including Dalton-in-Furness in Cumbria, were in the top 10 in England, the survey said.
Bebington residents, who live near the River Mersey and Port Sunlight model village, “enjoyed the ideal balance” of living close to their workplace, good schools and high employment, according to the report.
