From the economic powerhouse of London, to the rolling mountains of Scotland, the UK has it all. Great Britain offers stunning coastlines, majestic countryside and vibrant cities. Whatever you want from your environment, there is a place for you somewhere on this island. Before you decide where to live next, you’ll want to consider your lifestyle. Make a list of what you want most from your desired location.

The following locations were chosen as a result of studies into the most desirable locations. There were many factors taken into account. These included crime level, health and education and employment opportunities. However, that doesn’t mean they are always right for you. Discover what you want from life before pursuing a location. The following ideas will help you decide.

Hampshire

Hampshire features on just about every desirability list. Thanks to its quaint rural villages and proximity to London, it the ideal county. When you think of typical English living, you are generally thinking of Hampshire. The country is close to the beautiful south coast and a quick train ride to a number of major cities. It’s a great place for outdoor living. Perfect for those who love the peace and quiet, but aren’t quite ready to leave the city.

London

London isn’t winning any awards for affordability. However, it is the city of choice for professionals. It is one of the biggest cities in the world with one of the strongest economies. If you want to get ahead in business, this is where you come. London is home to more billionaires than any other city in the world. It is the number one place for opportunity and ambition.

Birmingham

Living in Birmingham offers you the chance to live in an exciting, diverse city with world-class restaurants, entertainment and shops.
Birmingham’s Balti Triangle is famous for its array of restaurants and takeaways offering spectacular curry dishes.
Birmingham is home to more than one million people from a range of different cultures and ethnic groups, including the UK’s largest student population outside London.

Its friendly population is what makes Birmingham the dynamic, multicultural city that is – and also one of the largest cities in Europe offering a heady mix of galleries, music, restaurants and bars.

Cornwall is irresistible and charming. Its southern location plays host to the finest beaches in the UK. You’ll find homes with a good view in St Mawes and cottages with peaceful walks in Bodmin.

Edinburgh

If you love the city life, but London is just too intense, Edinburgh is great alternative. The Scottish capital has plenty of employment opportunity, with beautiful city features to boot. It has the feel of a bustling village and the economic power of a capital. The city is steeped in history and you’re only five minutes from the rolling Scottish hills.

Berkshire

Berkshire is home to some the richest homes in Britain. Its close proximity to London and Heathrow make it the perfect commuter county. You’ll find beautiful thatched cottages and winding English roads. Many choose Berkshire as a place to raise a family. The children can experience the English countryside and the parents can easily commute to the city.

There are plenty of other options out there. Newcastle for vibrant city life, the Lake District for serene living or Brighton for days by the sea.

The Hottest London Venues For Marriage Proposals

enhanced-buzz-14927-1366819099-4

If you are living in London and looking to propose you will be pleased to hear there is no shortage of hot venues to choose from. Below we have a look at some of the most popular.

If desert beaches and mountain tops are beyond your reach, there are plenty of unusual places that will provide the perfect backdrop for the big question. The following suggestions are all based in London, but you can adapt the ideas to somewhere near you.

The London Eye

A capsule on the London Eye is fast becoming one of the most popular places to propose. With stunning views over the city and thirty minutes to complete the journey, it’s the perfect place to start your celebrations. The London Eye has special offers for Valentine’s Day itself, which include champagne, roses, chocolates and a private capsule, but if you want to propose at a different time, call the company to see if you can make special arrangements.

The Serpentine – Hyde Park

In a recent survey, hotel concierges said that a rowing boat on the Serpentine Lake in Hyde Park is currently a fashionable place to propose. Check out the weather, hire a rowing boat or pedalo, bring the ring, the champagne and prepare for a truly romantic proposal.

Hampton Court Maze

Possibly the most famous maze in the world, Hampton Court Maze is a great place for a romantic proposal. Set in the beautiful gardens of Hampton Court Palace alongside the River Thames, the yew hedges are a perfect backdrop for the occasion. Get deliberately lost and then drink champagne when you get to the middle!

A Boutique Hotel

London has many famous hotels, but a new type of hotel is coming of age in the city – the Boutique Hotel. These are small, individually decorated and quirky hotels that pride themselves on personal service. They are also, compared with many London hotels, good value for money. Take a room or visit the restaurant for a proposal to remember.

Some prospective grooms might want to propose to their girlfriends in a private, intimate setting. But as a women, I would love to be asked before thousands in the middle of a Culture Club concert. They are my favorite group. I’ve loved these guys since I was 13.

I bought myself 2 Culture Club Tickets and I’m looking forward to seeing them at The O2 on Tuesday 9 December 2014.  This will be their first live performance together for over 15 years and an evening not to be missed.
