A report by Tanya Mercer:

The Suffolk town of Woodbridge has been named as the best place to live in the East of England.

Fifteen locations in the region have been named in the 'Best Places to Live in Britain' guide by The Sunday Times.

Woodbridge topped the list after being judged on experiences at local pubs, ease of transport and the attraction to readers and their families.

Cambridge has been named one of the Sunday Times Best Places Top 20 perennials, which celebrates the places that have appeared in almost every list over the past five years.

This is the fifth year we have compiled the list, and this year’s is even bigger and better - the guide is more personal, more detailed and more comprehensive than ever before. The list weighs up everything from considering the likely impact of the local plan, to whether the post office is still open, the range of housing, and the quality of the coffee. >
