Out of the 46 towns surveyed the majority (26) fared worse than their neighbouring cities, the towns which compared least favourably were Castleford (Leeds), Kirky (Liverpool) and Shoreham-by-Sea (Brighton & Hove). The data seems to show that towns seem to fare either very well, or very badly whilst their nearby cities sit in the middle.
Towns in the Midlands did best when compared with their neighbouring cities, especially in the East Midlands, so we can pat ourselves on the back East Midlanders - another accolade to add to our cap full of feathers.

These accolades mean that we are getting noticed on the UK map for cultural activities as well as business and this is attracting lots of inwards investment, it seems that we are part of a virtuous cycle and that is not not to take away from the powers that be who must be working very hard to make all this happen.
It is for this reason that here at Nook & Cranny in West Bridgford we have set up so many very popular luxury Serviced Apartments with one or two bedrooms complete with free dedicated parking, fast free WiFi, all mod cons, including Nespresso machines and washer/dryers, fully equipped kitchen and bathrooms, and many of them also have bath tubs, dishwashers or are on one level and suitable for people with disabilities.
We are very proud to give the type of local service which means that we can help people relocate here with ease and feel feel at home as soon as possible after they arrive. Do get in touch if you think that your business could be in need of our apartments - we have many corporate housing bookers who book apartments for any length of time between a week and a year.
