Lincoln in best places to live in the UK list

This story is over

Lincoln is one of the best places to live in the Midlands and the UK, according to the 2018 Sunday Times list.

The Sunday Times Best Places to Live guide used data on jobs, schools and house prices to compile the list.

York was picked as the overall winner from across the UK, while Lincoln was ranked fifth in the Midlands.

The guide describes Lincoln as a “bargain” “pretty cathedral city” with a “beguiling combination of ancient and modern.”

The Sunday Times highlighted a wide range of events in the city, from farmers’ and arts and crafts markets to steampunk and sausage festivals.

The Jews House restaurant and Curtis also received a nod from the newspaper’s list.

Lower property prices in the downhill area, as well as the success story of the University of Lincoln helped the city make its mark in the guide.

The Sunday Times Midlands full list is:
  1. Shipston-on-Stour, Warwickshire
  2. Birmingham, Harborne
  3. Buxton, Derbyshire
  4. Fiskerton-cum-Morton, Nottinghamshire
  5. Lincoln
