Fifteen locations in the South East have been named among the Best Places to Live in Britain by The Sunday Times, and Marlow is one of them.  In fact, Marlow is the only one is in Buckinghamshire – hence our headline for this article! 🙂 

The accolade comes as part of The Sunday Times Best Places to Live guide, which was published on Sunday March 12. The report assessed a wide range of factors, from jobs, exam results and broadband speed to culture, community spirit and local shops in order to compile their list of top locations to live.

The description of Marlow makes a thing of our town being “beautiful” and “posh”, good food, good schools in Borlase and Great Marlow – and of course Eton isn’t too far away either… 🙂   Here is the full text:
