To help you find the perfect place to retire in the UK, Profile Pensions has conducted a survey to reveal the most popular retirement locations amongst pensioners in the UK right now.
Coming out on top was Plymouth, a seaside city in Devon. Famed for its cobbled streets, maritime heritage, fish market and glorious beachfront views, many choose it as a place to spend their retirement. Plus, with retirement homes costing an average of £130,000, it's no wonder it's popular.
Southampton, Nottingham and Cardiff closely followed, also offering affordable properties, activities and restaurants. Fill list of top retirement cities below...
Alongside the survey, there's also a clever infographic to see which areas of the UK cater for pensioners the best. From brilliant pubs, to nearby parks and affordable homes, you can use the guide to find your dream location.
Whether you're planning your retirement plans or simply want some inspiration for the future, take a look at which UK cities made the list.

Michelle Gribbin, Profile Pensions’ Chief Financial Officer, explains: "Retirement is a chance to really take care of yourself after years of work, and enjoy your family, pension, and life."
"We've created this study so existing pensioners and those coming up to pension age can choose somewhere to live that really suits their needs and their tastes – whether that’s places to go with friends and family like the cinema or a café, or somewhere to find some peace and quiet, like the golf course.
"Whatever you're looking for in retirement, make sure you're picking the right place for you when you look for a new home," Michelle continues.
