A view of Singapore skyline from Marina Bay Sands.
Which cheery place is at the top spot?
When you see which place is at number one, you may ask yourself whether 25,000 people can be wrong. Then again, you may be in complete agreement with the results from the latest survey by Rightmove, which reveal Britain's 'happiest' towns. The questionnaire covered issues such as safety, friendliness of neighbours and quality of local amenities - all of which are good to know if you plan on visiting the area. Either way, tell us what you think!

I have lived in Scotland, Wales and England. All there seems to be is more and more crime, more and more people taking from the state instead of working honestly. So many people complaining about the state of the government and the state of the country.
I visited and wrote to MPs about the influx of foreigners, i dont mind anyone immigrating anywhere as long as they work and pay taxes, not come straight to another country and get housing, benefits and free health care. I could see no changes. I chose to vote with my feet. I ended up immigrating and i work in my new country i dont scrounge from the state. I dont expect to get anything from the social security unless i paid in enough to get out, ie sick pay etc. The uk should follow other countries and not give benefits to people unless they are actual citizens and have paid into the system.
No wonder the Scots want independance. Where is the equality in this report? Surely, there must be happier places in Scotland, Northern Ireland or other parts of Wales. Has Northern Ireland sank into the sea. I know they have had troubles in the past, but I have experienced happy times there. Wales must also have other "happy" places with their rolling hills and many relocating to Wales. And finally, what about Scotland? Edinburgh - voted best place to visit by Tripadvisor, Glasgow - home of humour, Highlands & Islands - where many people move to get away from some of the towns/cities covered in your report. How was this survey compiled, was it England & Wales only?
the rich get richer ,the poor get poorer in this country and its happening no ,matter where u live,so called happy places usually are because the wealth is there ,these surveys are highly inaccurate and paint a rosier picture than there really is its sad but the happiest place in the uk is the departure lounge at an airport!!! immigrating
Nottingham must be the happiest place ever....

These are not "BRITAINS" Happiest places all of the above (bar one) are " ENGLANDS" happiest places!!!!!
If God was going to give the world and Enema, he would stick the tube in Carlisle.. I was born and bred in Carlisle and it's only redeeming feature is the M6 South.
Not surprised 3 of the top 5 are in Yorkshire. " YORKSHIRE, YORKSHIRE!
Number 2, my Number 1, York!
Yes, i'm always happy when i'm there visiting all the attractions, watching West end shows etc.
But, live there ??? No way, unless you want to feel you're pemanently abroad!
I agree with 'someone' happiness does depend on many factors.
