Ten locations in Wales, including Montgomery, have been named among the Best Places to Live in Britain by The Sunday Times.

The accolade comes ahead of the full reveal of The Sunday Times Best Places to Live guide, including the overall winner, which will be published on Sunday, April 14. The supplement assesses a wide range of factors, from employment, schools and broadband speed to culture, community spirit and local shops, in order to compile the definitive top locations to live.

The guide has also named Crickhowell as the Best Place to Live in Wales.

The methodology uses robust statistics, including exclusive, up to date house prices provided by Habito and TwentyCi, but also the knowledge of The Sunday Times’s expert panel. The judges combine the hard data with their own on-the-ground experience and insight to ensure the chosen locations truly are places where everyone can thrive.
