Yorkshire is 'Britain's happiest place'Welcome to Yorkshire

Feeling glum? Then you need to pack up and head for Yorkshire - officially Britain's happiest place.
Almost 60 per cent of people living in the county say that they are satisfied with their lives compared with a national average of 50 per cent, according a new survey.
Londoners are the least content in the UK, with just under half of them claiming to be happy.
Tourism experts say they are unsurprised by the findings. Gary Verity, chief executive of Welcome to Yorkshire, said: 'Yorkshire is not only blessed with some of the most breathtaking natural scenery in the world, but also some of the friendliest people on the planet. Who wouldn't be happy living in 'God's Own County'?"
Mintel's annual British Lifestyles survey found that Yorkshire-dwellers' happiness stems from the county's abundance of open spaces. 56 per cent of people living in villages were happy, compared with just 44 per cent in urban centres.
