Top Ten Cities in England & Wales - 2013

Rural and suburban locations feature heavily in our overall Top 20 postcodes because they score well on some key measures including affordable property and low crime rates. However, not all families would choose to live in rural locations because they value other key attributes such as access to amenities, cultural activities and in many cases better employment prospects.
