Bath, England

Lived in Bath for most of my adult life and while it’s an undoubtedly beautiful city to live in, it is eye-wateringly expensive. Everything from parking to basic groceries is higher than the national average and the homes are mind-bendingly pricey. It has all the same problems as any other city but in particular attracts large numbers of homeless people who quite rightly figure that if they’re going to live on the streets then it might as well be somewhere pleasant. The city’s biggest problem though is the tourist trade. It used to be that the numbers of tourists would fizzle out towards autumn and the Bathonians would reclaim the city centre pubs just in time for the start of the rugby season, but slowly but surely the tourist ‘season’ expanded and it is now a 365 day issue. Tourists clog the streets, drive up the cost of living and encourage touristy shops that have zero benefit for residents. In short it’s a lovely place to visit and enjoy, but unless you can afford a half million quid house and the inflated cost of living, while enduring streets that are clogged morning noon and night all year round then I wouldn’t advise living there.
