happiness in the east, picture of eaton park norwich in culture365


Rather than looking at a physical object, event or place today, we’re looking at a feeling. A number of places in the East are regularly featured on ‘Happiest Places to Live’ and ‘Happiest Places to Work’ lists.

In January 2016, business psychologists OPP named Norwich the happiest place to work in the UK, beating Brighton, Birmingham and Liverpool to the top spot. Earlier in February 2016, the Office for National Statistics revealed that Great Yarmouth was in the top 10 of Happiest Places to Live in the UK. In 2015, Ipswich was named third happiest place to live in the UK by Rightmove.

No matter what the source, and whether it’s about work, leisure or leaving, one thing is certain, happiness is an important part of the East!

Perhaps it’s the picturesque parks (like Eaton Park, Norwich, pictured here), breathtaking landscapes (which we’ve explored in previous 365 items, such as National Trust walks) or the fantastic world-class culture (which we’ve been exploring for the past 257 days)!
