A number of data sources - including the 2011 Census, the Department for Communities and Local Government's Indices of Multiple Deprivation, General Land Use database and numerous releases from the Office for National Statistics - all helped determine the best postcodes in the country.
Nowhere in London made the top ten list of most desirable places to live and work in the country, due to a lack of affordable housing and longer working hours.
Located on the banks of the River Mersey, Bebington's CH63 postcode made the top spot thanks to its 15,760 residents' access to good schools, lots of green space, good employment opportunities and short commutes to work.
The postcode NR6 - in north and north west Norwich - came in second while BH18 in Broadstone, in Poole, Dorset, was the third best place to live in England.
