Living in Richmond Upon Thames could be good for your health

Richmond Upon Thames is a popular Borough for a number of reasons. Perhaps most importantly is the fact that it is remarkably rural whilst still providing great amenities and transport links. This is ideal for many buyers, whether it is families or retirees.

Living in the area is also good for the health of residents. This was shown by Office for National Statistics (ONS) data from 2014 to 2016. The stats show that the Borough has the highest healthy life expectancy for men in the whole of the UK. In addition, women in the area scored higher than any other location in the capital.

Living close to green open spaces naturally encourages more healthy living. It offers plenty of advantages including better air quality and more opportunities to get outside. Greenery is great for emotional wellbeing as well as physical. It can improve mood, focus, and also reduces stress.
