Chester has been declared the fifth happiest place to live in Britain.
The city's success came in a survey conducted by Rightmove which asked more than 24,000 people questions such as how proud they are of their home, whether they are satisfied with how it is decorated, how safe they feel in their community, whether they have enough living space, how friendly the neighbours are and whether they worry about the value of their property.
Chester's lofty position in the survey was due to its scenery and attractions, shopping, communities and the fact so many residents said they were proud to call the city their home.
The survey also placed Chester the highest in its region which officially makes the city the happiest place to live in the North West.
Topping the poll was Harrogate while the rest of the top five was made up of Shrewsbury, Ipswich and York.
The London area did not fare well in the survey with the borough of Barking and Dagenham earning the unwelcome title of the least happy place to live in the country.
