The day has come, or may be coming, to figure out what you want to do with all your free time that comes along with retirement. It is not just a question of what you will be spending your free time on, but also where you will be spending it.
We’ve had a closer look at some of the top retirement locations in the UK. Have a read below to see what might be the best choice for you and get that retirement planning engine whirring.
You are a sophisticated type who knows there is a lot more culture left in the UK for you to experience. Cambridge is home to some of the most astounding minds and beautiful scenes in the UK, so you won't miss out on opportunities to stimulate your curious side. There is also plenty of time to spend entertaining loved ones or unwinding in the garden.
Sprawling countryside and quaint villages are the order of the day in Suffolk. You'll have ample opportunity to spend hours exploring this expansive area. There are places in Suffolk that exude relaxation and many chances to indulge in things like the award-winning butchers in Wickham Market or the Friday Street Farm Shop in Saxmundham. An added bonus of Suffolk is the coastline; spend your days watching the waves roll and tides change whilst tucking into fish and chips in Aldeburgh or Southwold.
Known as one of the happiest places to retire in the UK, Devon is as peaceful and romantic as you've always imagined. Sandy beaches, far-reaching moors and cosy cottages; Devon is ideal for those looking for a bit of peace and quiet without being totally cut off from the rest of the world. Opportunities to take up new hobbies such as fishing or boating are ample, and exercising outside will never be boring.
Home Sweet Home
Sometimes there really is no place like home. If you're happy where you are, with all of your home comforts and loved ones around you, then why move anywhere?
