We’ve always thought we had the edge personally. You only have to take one look at Liam Gallagher to know that Northerners have it down in the fashion department…
And now Ideal Flatmate has officially revealed the most fashionable places in the UK.
Turns out, Leeds tops the ranking for the most fashionable city in the UK followed by Manchester. And – Liverpool, Sheffield, Newcastle and Glasgow topping the list shows that the North is THE trendy place to be. Obviously we already knew as much…
1,000 participants UK-wide were surveyed, being asked to rank out of 10 what they thought of how fashionable they thought their city and people were…
The citiziens of Leeds believed their city was by far the trendiest place to be .
Leeds locals think Harewood is the hippest area whereas young professionals will feel most at home in picturesque suburb Roundhay. When it comes to nightlife, the city centre is where it’s at and it’s easy to see why with bars and clubs on every corner. Overall, Wetherby, a little outside Leeds, is the place to call home according to locals.
But what can you expect when it comes thinning out the purse strings? Looking at the cost of a pint you can see which cities are cheapest for cheers-ing away the night.

1. Manchester city (Ranking 1/222) – With the average salary standing at £26,399,2 and a growing technology culture, it’s no wonder that Manchester topped our list. With a local airport and a great nightlife, Manchester really lives up to its ‘Northern Charm’.
2. Camden (London) (Ranking 2/222) – With an average salary of £23,1443 and easy access to London city centre, Camden seems to be attracting new residents on a daily basis.
3. Sheffield City (Ranking 3/222) – The steel city is well renowned for its great nightlife, music scene and friendly locals, and with an average salary of £24,288,4 it’s hard to argue with Sheffield’s place within the rankings.
4. Royal Borough of Greenwich (London) (Ranking 4/222) – The average wage for residents of Greenwich is less than most in London with most workers taking home £19,4525 per year. That being said, Greenwich boasts a wealth of attractions including the Royal Observatory and the National Maritime museum, making it a top spot for anyone looking to move.
5. Wetherby (Ranking 5/222) – This small market town located outside of Leeds attracts residents due to its quiet, friendly atmosphere and generous green space. Wetherby has a local reputation for being a prestigious area and is a perfect fit for residents looking to gain good access to Leeds city while still enjoying the countryside.
Tom Gatzen Co-Founder of Ideal Flatmate commented:
“It’s fantastic to see Manchester voted as the most up-and-coming area of the UK. The press often associate any major UK investments with London, but with a thriving economy in the north of England and cheaper living rates, it’s no wonder people are look to invest their time and money in these areas.”
