Researchers have crowned the historic market town Wokingham as the best place in the UK to bring up children.
Wokingham, around 50 km from London and with a population of 30,000, topped the list, thanks to excellent school results, low crime levels and relatively affordable homes.
The study also considered the availability of parks and green spaces, leisure centres, museums and theatres, the 'Daily Express' reported.
The town in Berkshire, which held its first market in 1219 and was famed for bull-baiting in the 17th century, also boasts of art galleries and churches.
Its transport links to London make it an attractive town for business. Residents there enjoy an average salary of 33,544 pounds.
The study of 2,400 post-codes across the country examined factors like quality of schools, affordability of living and crime levels.
