We all know that London is the best city to live in.
It’s not like we’re biased or anything.
The hustle and bustle of the capital mixed with endless opportunities to explore and discover keeps Londoners entertained for a lifetime.
Despite our clear prejudices, there are some other cities that could get an insight that someone in the capital would switch to another city.

Readers of Condé Nast Traveler have voted to find out which cities in the UK make up the top 10.
Last year, London finished third in the top 10. This year it came first. That led two others to the top spot, who were they?
The traveler’s publication started the listing with an explanation of rankings, it said: “Our annual Reader’s Choice Awards are the largest and most influential in the industry and shine a light on the best places around the world.
“In partnership with our sister title in the United States, we can now uncover the city destinations that achieved the highest marks when it comes to nightlife, restaurants and friendliness.”

Cambridge received a shout in the records: “History is woven into the medieval lanes and monastery colleges of this free-ranging university town.
“But now a girl’s party is adding newcomer cocktail and coffee culture to the equation.”
In a very surprising 5th place was Manchester. Last year, Manchester did not even reach the top 10!
The top four were where the really interesting cities were located. No offence.
When London took first place, the other three of the top four were all not worthy of the luminous title of best city in the UK.
Glasgow was the first to fall to London’s superiority. The city became number 4.
Condé Nast Traveler had this to say about Glasgow: “Among the things you need to know about Glasgow that tend to go unsaid: it is a spectacularly beautiful city that did just as much as almost anywhere else in Western Europe to shape the modern world and the way we live now. “
Third was Liverpool. The shooters will be proud of it. Unfortunately, the scouts did not take first place. Like Liverpool FC, underperformers.
Scotland came in with yet another highscorer to push Liverpool back to 3rd.
Edinburgh, the city was named 2nd!
It won the place because: “In the last few years, the city has developed into a foodie hotspot! Edinburgh, famous for its festival and varied architecture. ”
London, of course, took first place. The 32 glorious districts constituted a winning city.
