The UKs Most Private Cities

"With our Escapists Paradise data set, you can now explore some of our islands most treasured and secluded spots to have the perfect staycation."
Mark Whittaker, General Manager at Flogas

With World Mental Health Day still fresh in our minds, it’s safe to say that the coronavirus pandemic has had a profound impact on our daily lives, especially when it comes to mental health. Routines have been disrupted, working from home has left people isolated, and the ability to go abroad to destress has been limited.

A recent article on the BBC highlighted the impact Covid-19 had on mental health, with a study from the University of Glasgow warning that lockdowns may have “profound and long-lasting” effects.

The research found that suicidal thoughts increased from 8% to 10%, with the small increase still significant because of the short period of time they happened over.

So as Britons try to get to grips with new ways of living, energy supplier Flogas has revealed the UK’s top Escapists’ Paradise - the perfect locations to get away from the stresses of everyday life.

Flogas has compiled the UK’s most private holiday spots by analysing reviews of 60 British cities to award them a ‘privacy’ rating. They explored the number of publicly owned CCTV cameras in each area, its population, how connected and accessible the area is, and which city the terms ‘secluded’ and ‘hidden’ were most frequently used on TripAdvisor.

After allocating an overall score out of 100, Gloucester came out on top, owing to its great combination of social privacy (100), and accessibility (97.9).

Mark Whittaker, General Manager – Consumer, at Flogas, said: “Taking a break from our day-to-day routine is something we all crave, but even when we manage weekend trips, how often can we truly switch off? With our Escapists’ Paradise data set, you can now explore some of our island’s most treasured and secluded spots to have the perfect staycation.

“It seems that the South West has the answers, with Gloucester and Salisbury ranking first and second, while the rural city of Hereford completes the top three.”

It will come as no surprise to see London at the wrong end of the charts with a score of 40 overall. A bustling population, high levels of CCTV, and social privacy score of just 63.2 means your private break might not be all that private.

The Welsh coastal city of St David’s had the least CCTV cameras of the cities analysed, with Preston (99.2) and Cardiff (98.3) offering the best social privacy behind Gloucester on 100.

Ely in Cambridgeshire was deemed the least connected city, warranting a score of 91.6.
