Belfast rated in top 10 of the UK's most healthy cities

By Staff Reporter

Belfast has been named as one of the top 10 healthiest cities in the UK.

A study has charted 31 of the most populated locations in the UK by comparing the number of gyms, cycle routes and fast food restaurants they have per 100,000 people.

And Belfast was placed at number eight in the list.

Belfast has eight gyms per 100,000 people, four McDonald's takeaways, 12 swimming pools, 52 sport clubs and shops, 15 public parks and 78 cycling routes.

Dudley has been found the unhealthiest place to live by with just three gyms per 100,000.

It had five times the number of McDonald's restaurants than the healthiest place, Bristol.

The city in the south west of England topped the list with its 18 gyms per 100,000 people, just two McDonald's and a staggering 234 cycle routes.
