Take 5…Homes in city centres


City centres are the regional focal points for arts, food and outstanding architecture and historically a central location for businesses. Despite this, for many people, city centres are their ‘neighbourhood’, their ‘community’, and the place they call ‘home’. From apartments in Edinburgh’s west end, penthouses in cosmopolitan central London, to the commanding Georgian terraces in historic Bath, the buzz of each individual city centre is thanks to the homes located there. During the past year, the community feeling has come to the fore – from getting to know your neighbours with simple acts of kindness, and exploring the streets with new exercise regimes, many city centre residents have rediscovered the joys of city life.

Every city has a diversity of architecture with buildings varying in style, each telling an architectural and historical story. Cities are hotspots for galleries and museums, as well as festivals, music, diverse markets, and music scenes. As well as city centres having an immersive culture, they are great for family days out offering everything from shopping to culture, museums to musicals, eating out to stepping out!
