Safest places to live in the UK, revealed

February 20 2019

Buying a new home takes time, planning and research. But while property websites will tell you about the nearest train stations and schools, they won’t tell you the area’s crime statistics.

At ADT we want to make sure everyone across the nation feels safe moving into a new neighbourhood, that’s why we set up our crime in my area page. With information fed through from the police, you can find out the level and types of crimes recorded in your postcode. So, you can make the best decision to keep you and your family safe.

To save you some time, we’ve also pulled together a list of the safest places to live in the UK. These cities have the lowest recorded crime rates across the board*:

St. Asaph
