It might be known as the Fine City. But Norwich only came 28th in a poll to find Britain's happiest place to live.
Leamington Spa, in Warwickshire, topped the survey carried out by property website Rightmove.
King's Lynn came sixth, also pipping Norwich to the top regional slot.
Rightmove asked 17,000 people across the country how happy they were with where they live.
Researcher Abiola Oni said: 'It's the people in an area and how someone feels about living there that makes the biggest difference. 'So the strength of community spirit, people feeling like they belong and that they can be themselves are all more important than the services and money that they have, though these do still contribute to overall happiness.'
Leigh-on-Sea, in Essex, came second in the survey, followed by the Wirral, Harrogate and Tunbridge Wells.
