A survey by property portal Rightmove has revealed the 10 happiest places to live in the UK.
Over 17,000 people across the UK took part in the survey which asked residents how happy they are where they live, and asked them to rate 12 happiness factors, including friendly neighbours to how good the local services are.
Richmond Upon Thames came 8th on the list.
The affluent borough of Richmond upon Thames is home to large open spaces including Richmond Park, Kew Gardens and Bushy Park.
The vast green spaces are part of the reason why typical property prices are 3x the UK average.
Richmond upon Thames is the only London city to make the top 10 list.
