Two Surrey towns among the best places to live

Published at 6:01am 10th March 2017.

Two Surrey towns are named among the top places to live in the South East.

The Sunday Times puts Godalming and Farnham in the top five.

Areas are ranked on things like crime rates, the quality of local pubs and transport links.

Commenting on The Sunday Times Best Places to Live, Home Editor Helen Davies said: "This is the fifth year we have compiled the list, and this year's is even bigger and better - the guide is more personal, more detailed and more comprehensive than ever before.

"The list weighs up everything from considering the likely impact of the local plan, to whether the post office is still open, the range of housing, and the quality of the coffee.

"Numbers on a spreadsheet can only tell us so much, so we carefully balance statistics with our writers' decades of knowledge and expertise to create the definitive list of the best places to live in the UK."

Average property prices for sale and to rent have been provided by Countrywide plc.

Johnny Morris, Research and Analytics Director at Countrywide plc, said: "Using extensive data from across our businesses, along with official statistics, we have been able to paint a detailed picture, not just of how much it costs to buy or rent in different places across the country, but what it is like to live there too.

"We've been able to do this for all types of people, from someone renting their first flat to a family buying their forever home."
