According to Britain’s Press Association news agency, Sunday Times Home editor Helen Davies said the city of 45,000 had shown a “real collective spirit in dealing with the chemical attack.”
The Sunday Times says Salisbury has “bounced back” following the “shock, fear and confusion spawned by the attack.”
“In the immediate aftermath of the poisoning, the city’s shops emptied; tourists, who are a mainstay of the local economy, stayed away. But now business is returning to normal, the cafes are full and there’s hope and enthusiasm in the air,” the newspaper said.
The Isle of Dogs was named the best place to live in London, according to the Sunday Times list, while Dundee took the top spot in Scotland, Holywood won in Ireland and Crickhowell was chosen as Wales’s winner.
The results were based on expert knowledge provided by the judges, alongside statistics such as housing prices, according to PA.
Previous winners of the paper’s best place to live title include York in 2018, and Bristol in 2017.
