England’s top 50 WORST places to live revealed – and there’s a new town in the top spot… where does yours rank?

THE worst places to live in the UK have been revealed in a new poll of unhappy residents.
The survey by ILiveHere found Luton to be bottom of the heap in terms of quality of life for locals – now you can see where your town ranks.

Slough and Aylesbury rounded out the top five, based on audience surveys and public votes.
The YouTube clip revealing the top ten undesirable locations attracted scathing comments about the places featured.
One user wrote: “I left Luton in 2020 and I’m glad.”

Another blasted: “As Luton recently lost Chicken George [a local restaurant] as its only saving grace, it shall forever remain at number one.”
A third fumed on Facebook: “Luton…if you live there, you are already living in hell.”
However, one defended the hated town, saying: “There are far far worse places than Luton in the UK, lets not kid ourselves.”
Lovers of Northampton might feel stung as it only just snuck onto the list in 50th place.

London boroughs seem to have avoided the wrath of the public as only four appear on the list.
Hounslow, Barking and Dagenham and Croydon are all on there, though none higher than 19th.
Perhaps surprisingly, Kensington and Chelsea comes out worst in the capital, in 15th, despite being home to streets of luxury shops and restaurants catering to millionaire residents.
The North and Midlands bore the brunt of local dissatisfaction, with the majority of the top 50 in those regions.
However, southern regions including London, Essex, Dorset and Buckinghamshire all saw areas make the list.
Some social media commenters, though, were less generous than the official rankings, suggesting that “all of England” should be placed in the top spot.
