South Cambridgeshire is the Best Place to Live in Rural Britain

Recent Survey Reveals South Cambridgeshire is the Best Place to Live in Rural Britain

Last year South Cambridgeshire (made up of 105 villages) was voted one of the best places to live in the UK in a survey due to its mix of high incomes, life expectancy, good health and education.

The survey measured every rural location in Britain on criteria including home size, traffic flows, employment, crime, weather, and GCSE results.

This was largely put down to the prosperity of South Cambridgeshire being close to the vibrant university city of Cambridge with its many biotech and companies and science and education-driven economy.

Recession barely seems to have touched South Cambridgeshire, where house prices rose strongly through 2010 and currently average around £275,000. Unemployment is below 2% and employment in the R&D sector is 18 times the national average.
