A POLL of the best and worst places to live in England has put Slough in the top five worst places to live.

Ranking at number four, Slough has been harshly criticised and one of the few positive comments included ‘just a shortjoy-ride to Maidenhead, Windsor and other upmarket areas’.

ILiveHere is a controversial online polling site where people can vote for the best and worst places to live - with 105,598 reported to have had their say in this year’s poll.

Slough has slowly been rising up the list and in 2022 the iLiveHere poll announced Slough was ranked the ninth worst place to live in England, up The survey named Slough one of the worst places to live in England from 24th in 2021.

However, despite the poor ranking, we are sure our readers would disagree and argue Slough benefits from many positive attributes.

Slough also has a lot of countryside around it, boasting beautiful walks and scenery within a five-mile radius.

It also boasts good travel links plus a huge amount of career opportunities with Slough Trading Estate on the doorstep, known to be Europe’s largest trading estate home to dozens of businesses.

We also disagree on the smell, if you live in Britwell or Cippenham you may even smell chocolate from the Mars factory.
