St Albans has been named as the 'most stylish place to live in Hertfordshire', according to a recent poll.

A survey, which polled 5,000 people, was conducted by online store Furniturebox.

Locations were ranked according to the beauty of their buildings, stunning scenery and popularity with artists.

St Albans beat Tring (second), Hertingfordbury (third), Rickmansworth and Much Hadham to the title.


The city came 47th on Furniturebox's national list, which was topped by Suffolk's Lavenham.

A spokesperson for the online store said: "St Albans is the most stylish place to live in Hertfordshire.

“Any of the Herts locations voted by residents would have been worthy winners and show why it is such a stylish county, loved by artists, film-makers and tourists from all over the world.

“What is interesting is how many of the most stylish locations were not the most affluent places in their locality.

“Good style can be achieved whatever your budget and what marks out Hertfordshire's most stylish places is how they all have a timeless quality achieved over generations by the stylish people living there."
