England’s 50 worst places to live have been revealed according to members of the public who voted in an annual poll on iLiveHere. The tongue-in-cheek website that allows people to post warts and all reviews of their home towns has once again compiled a list of the worst 50 places to live.
Voting took place from the end of 2022 into January 2023 and the results were finally announced late on Monday (February 6) with a YouTube video revealing the ‘top 10’ worst towns, while places 11-50 were named on the iLiveHere website.
Luton, Bedfordshire, has been crowned the worst place to live in the country with a blurb stating: “The town itself is not easy on the eye. It makes Slough comparable to the Playboy tax exile haven of Monaco.” Slough itself, an ever-present on the list, came in at fourth place this year.
