It ranks 18 in the PwC’s Good Growth for Cities Index 2018, which lists the performances of 42 of the UK’s largest towns and cities, particularly in terms of income and transport.

Topping the list is Oxford and Reading, with Swansea and Sunderland lingering in bottom place.

Norwich’s position remains unchanged from last year, but is ranked significantly higher than Manchester, Birmingham and Newcastle, which each scored 23, 26 and 33, respectively.

The index measures growth in employment, health, income and skills within the 42 cities across the UK, while housing affordability, commuting times, environmental factors and income inequality are also considered.

Norwich scored highly in jobs, skills for young people aged 16-24 and transport, but work-life-balance and house price to earnings were given a low rating.
