If you could live anywhere in the UK, where would it be?

According to the Daily Telegraph, the answer most of us should give is Norfolk, named the classiest county in Britain in a recent poll.

The survey, which considered factors such as property value and lifestyle, set out to find the most desirable counties to live in the UK.

The paper said: "It hardly needs Sandringham to give Norfolk the cachet of a superior address. The whole county oozes class, the Broads are as gorgeous as ever and ultra-trendy towns such as Burnham Market attract a sophisticated set from London. "

Gloucestershire was left snapping at its heels in second place. A favourite with the royals, Prince Charles has a home there at Highgrove, and its "highly cosmopolitan" towns like Cheltenham as well as the "beautiful Cotswolds countryside" are highlighted.

North Yorkshire, Berkshire and Fife rounded also feature in the top five.

Perhaps surprisingly, Cornwall came in at number 13, despite being the most popular holiday destination in the UK, while Pembrokeshire was seen as up and coming, taking the 17th spot, and Leicestershire limped in at number 20.

Take a look at the full list below. Do you agree with the list? Are there any missing that should have made it? And are there some that shouldn't be on there?
