6 Of The Sunniest Places to Live in the UK

Many people don’t think of sunshine when referring to the UK. In fact, many people will say that it always rains. However, this notion is a misconception. 

Although the UK doesn’t get as much sunshine as Spain, some areas of the UK get plenty of sunshine. Eastbourne, Cornwall, Tiree, Central London, Aberdeen, and Bognor Regis are some of the sunniest places to live in the UK.


Eastbourne, a seaside town in East Sussex, is one of the sunniest places in the UK. It has over 1800 hours of sunshine a year.

Eastbourne has a beautiful beach and is near the beautiful Seven Sisters cliffs. Residents love to walk the beach, picnic, or spend time at the cliffs. (1)


The historic Cornwall in South West England is known for its stunning beaches, making it an ideal spot for beach lovers. There are plenty of activities under the Cornwall sun, such as sailing, surfing, or taking a relaxing stroll along the coast.

Cornwall also has some of the best restaurants in the UK so that you can enjoy the sunshine and the local delicacies. (2)


One of the British Isles is Tiree. Consider the “Hawaii of the North,” Tiree has more sunshine than any other location in the British Isles.
