Other major UK cities did not do as well. London ranked 36th overall and it was let down by the high average cost of a gym membership (£47.89) and the small number of parks and green space per capita (0.03 per 10,000 residents).
Manchester was the UK's worst performing city and took the 43rd place overall. It also had a low number of parks and green space (0.01 per 10,000 residents) and a moderate air and water quality (49.55 and 37.5 respectively).
The average life expectancy plays a huge part in the health of a city.
