Manchester Has Been Named The Best UK City To Live In

For the second year in a row!

Not that we didn’t already know that, but it’s always nice to have a statistic or two to throw in a doubter’s face should the situation require it.

The proof comes in the form of The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) Livability Index, which ranks 140 cities on a range of factors, including political and social stability, crime, education and access to healthcare.

Manchester was ranked 38th, three places down from last year, but still ahead of London, which only ranked 48th.

Vienna was named the most liveable city in the world, followed by Melbourne, Sydney, Osaka, Calgary, Vancouver, Toronto, Tokyo, Copenhagen and Adelaide.

At the other end of the scale is the Syrian capital, Damascus, for the second year in a row.
