London Has Been Voted Best City In The World!

Move over Paris and New York, London has been voted Best City in the World! But before we pop the prosecco, it turns out it only really counts if you are rich.

According to a PwC survey conducted on 5,200 well-educated, high-income adults, London is the best city in the world for quality of life. 16 countries around the world (pretty sure there’s almost 200 countries but okay) were ranked according to factors such as culture, happiness and infrastructure, and we came out on top. (Can’t argue that we don’t have fantastic culture, we have M&M World for heaven’s sake). Throughout the study, London was said to be a very dynamic city with a well-developed infrastructure, legal system and health service — and apparently we also lived up to our reputation when comparing perceptions to reality (i.e. quantifiable info). Good ol’ London!

Paris was voted second, New York third, Amsterdam fourth and Sydney fifth.

It’s a shame they only asked a well-to-do crowd, because we can’t help but feel undeserving of our win. We’re not saying we want a re-vote, because we’re pretty happy with our new Best City on Earth status, but it would be interesting to ask, you know, everyone…
