Although the country has been plunged into a third lockdown, thankfully we are still allowed to exercise.

And the good news for the people of Bedford is, according to Zoopla, we are the third best location to live in for green spaces.

We even beat off the likes of Bath and York.

And although London ranks first for having the most amount of green spaces with 243 to choose from, Bedford has the third best access with the highest number of green spaces per household.

And with Bedford Park, Russell Park, Priory Country Park and Mowsbury Park, to name a few, it's worth getting out for your daily exercise, as per Government regulations.

Here's the top five:

1) Chester

2) Norwich

3) Bedford

4) Bath

5) York

Commenting on the analysis, Tom Parker, consumer expert at Zoopla, said: “Knowing you’re living in a supportive and thriving community, as well as a safe location, are often top of the list for home buyers. But having a green space nearby where you can get some fresh air is the cherry on top, particular if we face further lockdowns."
