Living in Winchester

21. Winchester, Hampshire

Location, Location, Location's Kirsty and Phil are constantly banging on about Winchester's many assets.

For starters, the residents are amongst the highest earners in the UK and as a result the place is rammed with excellent schools, hospitals and all the benefits of country living, including a minuscule crime rate and a long life-expectancy.

It's a breeze to get to London, Brighton and the North - you can get to Waterloo in under an hour - but council tax prices are cheaper than some London boroughs. With all that in mind, you might expect a town full of retired accountants but over 60% of the 110,000 strong population are under 49.

Average house price: £346,680
