UK’s most social city
Where should you live if you want a thriving social life?
You’re never short of things to do in UK cities, from visiting museums, restaurants and theatres to experiencing vibrant nightlife. However, when it comes to keeping you entertained, not all cities are created equal and some lack the variety that adventure seekers are looking for on a Saturday night. Or any night of the week. We don’t judge.
For those of you who like to keep that little bit busier, we’ve done some research to find out which British cities are the most social to visit and live in.
We determined how sociable a city is by comparing the city’s population with how many pubs, museums, restaurants, concerts, venues and theatres it has.
And the winner is…
This old cotton spinning town has much to offer for anyone who wants a fun night out. With over 2,827 restaurants, 360 pubs, 33 museums and 30 live venues and theatres, there are lots of things to do at any time of the week.
Brighton is close behind, with its 242,858 inhabitants enjoying a total of 1,424 places to go to have fun. This means there are 171 people per venue, making it the second most social city in the UK.
And bringing up the rear…
On the other end of the spectrum, the least social city award goes to Perth. With 151,290 inhabitants and merely 224 venues to socialise in, it can only offer 1 venue for every 675 people. But fear not, the city’s pint prices are only £3.07 on average, so at least the Perthians can have a reasonably priced drink while squeezing into 1 of the city’s 75 pubs.
