The annual survey looks at a combination of 26 different factors, including life expectancy, happiness scores, exam results and average earnings.

These are the top 10 best places to live in the UK according to that survey. Full results can be found on Lloyds Banking Group’s website.

East Hertfordshire came out on top as the best place to live in Britain thanks to strong exam results, good health and happiness scores, high life expectancy and high average earnings.
In second place was Fareham, one of several South East locations to make it into the top 10.
Hart District is one of the wealthiest, least deprived areas in the UK - so it’s hardly surprising that it made it onto the Halifax list as the third best place to live for a high quality of life.
Also in the South East, the market town of Horsham was designated a great place to live for a high quality of life.
Home to the Hythe Quay, residents of Maldon also have a high quality of life according to the Halifax survey.
Just a stone’s throw from York, the small town of Selby ranked highly in several of Halifax’s quality of life factors.
The Hambleton district, which offers access to the gorgeous North York Moors National Park, came in at number seven for quality of life in the UK.
The primarily rural Babergh area sits in Suffolk, and also scored highly on several quality of life factors in the survey.
Also in Suffolk, St Edmundsbury was named one of the best places to live in Britain by the survey.
At number 10 was Wokingham, the historic market town not far from the capital.
