The fifth estate’s weekly list of the world’s best places to live, work and play is now up to a year old, and the United Kingdom is the latest to join the list.
In a ranking of the best places in the world to live and work, the fifth estate found that there were some “small surprises” to the list, including the Netherlands, where prices were cheaper, but not the same.
“The Netherlands is a nice country but the price is not the cheapest in the region, and rents are very high,” said Sarah Lea, the fourth estate’s senior writer.
The list also looked at the cheapest places in each country, as well as the average price for the median household. “
I think the Netherlands will remain the best for quite some time.”

The United Kingdom’s average rent was £2,746, compared to the UK’s average of £1,823.
The US average was $3,037, the average for the US as a whole was $2.27 million, and Australia’s average was just under $2 million.
The UK, meanwhile, had the highest median income at £47,500, followed by New Zealand at £40,200, Canada at £38,500 and Australia at £32,700.
“This shows that while there are some big surprises in the UK, it is not as expensive as people have claimed,” Lea added.
The fifth edition of the fifth estates list will be published on Friday, with prices in the US and UK being revealed next week.”
For the average household, we think that the UK still has the best value for money, but that it is getting very expensive.”
