MALTON has been named as one of the 10 locations in the North and Northeast to live by The Sunday Times.

The accolade comes ahead of the full reveal of The Sunday Times Best Places to Live guide, which is published on Sunday, March 18. The supplement assesses a wide range of factors, from jobs, schools and broadband speed to culture, community spirit and local shops, in order to compile the definitive top locations to live.

The other best places to live in the North and Northeast, are Tynemouth and Alnwick, Northumberland, Beverley, East Yorkshirem Chapel Allerton, Leeds, Durham, County Durham, Gosforth, Newcastle, Pateley Bridge and Skipton in North Yorkshire and Wetherby, West Yorkshire.

Tynemouth is this year’s Best Place to Live in the North and Northeast, outshining other Newcastle hotspots such as Jesmond and Gosforth.

The Sunday Times Best Places to Live in Britain covers the following regions: North and Northeast, Midlands, Northern Ireland, Southeast, Wales, Southwest, East, London, Scotland and the Northwest. It also reveals the overall best place to live in the UK.

“Choosing the right location to put down roots is one of the most important decisions you'll make,” said Helen Davies, The Sunday Times Home editor. “Which is why we’re here to help - and what Best Places to Live in Britain is all about. We’re very excited that it is a standalone magazine this year. There is much to celebrate, and Britain is scattered with thriving towns and villages, cool cities and suburbs, though people may be surprised how many traditional favourites haven’t made the cut in 2018.”
