GIVEN its size and pop­u­la­tion den­sity, Lon­don came top in a sur­vey by moneysu­per­mar­ to de­cide the UK’s best cities for run­ning events.

The web­site found Lon­don­ers had ac­cess to over 170 events at an av­er­age cost of £29.39 com­pared to a na­tional av­er­age of £27.55.

But when it came to value of en­try to events the best place was Aberdeen – where the num­ber of events was low, at only four, but the av­er­age cost was £9.96, £17.58 lower than the av­er­age.

The most event-dense lo­ca­tion out­side of Lon­don was Portsmouth, with 34 events dur­ing 2016 at an av­er­age cost of £28.20.
