We are all tired of this cost of living crisis.

It’s affecting many people’s quality of life badly, with many barely making ends meet.

It’s been going on for so long that a huge two in three workers have said they are willing to move to a new city after looking at the cost of where they live and work.

Because London may be the most appealing to UK workers who want the highest salaries, but it ranks last for overall quality of living.

It seems, that Edinburgh is the best city to live in if you care most about quality of life.

These were factors that 30% of Brits mentioned when they were asked what would make them relocate.

The Scottish city also has a lower average property price of £337,506 compared to London’s £553,000. That might explain why 71% of Londoners would consider moving there.

Edinburgh also had one of the best scores for healthcare accessibility and air quality, giving it an overall score of 8.2.

When it came to work related factors that would inspire a move, more than half of the 5,000 respondents in the survey said a higher salary or pay rise would work.

This was followed by a good benefits package or a relocation package (both 39%), a promotion or better job title (38%) or more flexible work options (32%).

So Edinburgh might look like the solution to our cost of living and work-life balance problems.
