Edinburgh's residents amongst the proudest of their city

The City of Edinburgh Council Leader has welcomed news that Edinburgh's residents are amongst the proudest of their city in the country.

Research by YouGov revealed that 90% of citizens are proud to live in the capital, citing historic landmarks, local culture, green spaces and transport links amongst the things they love most about the city.

Council Leader, Andrew Burns, said: “We are delighted that Edinburgh’s residents are so proud of their city – we feel the same way. The capital is packed with stunning historical landmarks and beautiful open spaces, as well as a thriving cultural scene, which I know its citizens appreciate and this survey demonstrates that.

“Edinburgh boasts an excellent integrated transport system too, and these results back up positive levels of satisfaction in public transport shown in our last Edinburgh People Survey, as well as similarly positive figures from Transport for Edinburgh.

“This poll is the latest of many accolades recognising Edinburgh’s appeal, which makes it one of the best places to visit, work, live and study in the world.”

Edinburgh came second out of ten 'leading cities' in the UK, with first place Brighton scoring 91%.

Findings mirror recent results of the Edinburgh People Survey, which showed that 89% of respondents were satisfied with Edinburgh as a place to live.
