what sort of lifestyle do you want? Until you've answered that it's hard to think where would suit you best. In total ignorance, as I've never lived there, I'll say that London is as good as city living gets. If you want good weather then down to the med with you. If you want remote then St Kilda's for you. If you want suburban living then, eh, anywhere in the UK! If you want picturesque then any of the spa towns or York or SW or Snowdonia or anywhere north of Stirling or Northumberland or the lakes or or or or!!!!!!!!!! We (me and the Mrs) often ask ourselves if we could do rural living and the answer is always no for me. I like convenience too much, plus in Scotland you're never far away from a bit of countryside anyways. If I could choose anywhere then it'd probably be Paris though.
