Britain's Favourite town, 361480 votes

What makes a town or city a good - or great - place to live? It's not just a matter of architecture; or a successful football team or economy; or even great pubs and clubs. And in the UK it is surely not to do with the weather. There is something intangible - like trying to define the idea of home - about the best of Britain. With so many of us nowadays moving around the country - born here, studied, worked and stayed there - our knowledge is far wider than it used to be. So when you vote for your top town it could be where you come from, or where you'd like to go to. The choice is yours.
