We recently ran a poll of over 12,000 renters to see what their plans are as the UK starts to open up again. Almost 80% said they were planning on moving, or thinking about it. Not only that, 76% of those moving said they're planning to move to a completely different town or city.

That's a lot of people making some big changes. So, we've put together a handy guide to average room rents in the UK's 50 biggest towns and cites, to help you decide where to move to.
