Top UK retirement destination for British pensioners unveiled – it’s NOT Southwold

top uk retirement destination for british pensioners unveiled its not southwold

Britons retiring in the near future might be looking to relocate somewhere for a better quality of life. For some, this may mean heading to the coast, for others it could be closer to family members.

There are some places in the UK typically hailed by retirees, including Southwold in Suffolk which has traditionally been opted for due to its seaside location, traditional pier and quaint and upmarket town centre.

However, data from the Office of National Statistics (ONS) revealed this isn’t actually the top hotspot for retirees at all.

The latest survey, conducted in 2019, used the percentage of people over 65 in each local authority across the nation.

In doing so, the data showed it is actually North Norfolk, rather than Suffolk, which has the highest number of retirees living there.

This is perhaps why some of the listed regions are so highly populated with retirees.

Among these important features are reasonable house prices, good access to healthcare, decent transport links, local amenities such as shops and attractions, as well as safety.

Getting outdoors is also important, which is why areas with nearby countryside or coastal regions are often popular for those looking to relocate in later life.

The experts suggest a high percentage of parks and green space, as well as good walkability, are of utmost appeal.

However, the Pensionbee experts also point out that not all of the regions listed by the ONS will have the ability to promise a great quality of life for those in their later years.
