Manchester voted one of the greenest cities in the UK

A new study has found that Manchester is one of the greenest cities in the UK.

Manchester comes in at fifth in a list of the UK's greenest cities, only coming behind Bristol, Edinburgh, Belfast and Cardiff.

London, on the other hand, comes in at 26th in the study commissioned by Compare The Market.


The study takes into account air quality, green space including parks and recycling.

Welsh cities Cardiff and Swansea topped the recycling list with 57.1% of waste recycled. Meanwhile Birmingham and Bournemouth came out as the worst recyclers.

Manchester, while it has its problems, has made huge leaps in recent years with the introduction of the Metrolink and new cycling routes meaning there are significantly less cars on the road.

We'll take that.
