Wokingham is one of the UK’s best places to live based on average employment levels, earnings and long life expectancy, according to the 2017 Halifax Quality of Life Survey. However, a great quality of life can come at a price. Average current house values in the area total £510,603 – £187,934 higher than the UK average of £322,669*.
