Norwich is the best place in England to be a primary school child, according to a new study.

Play Like Mum has taken data from local councils, Yelp and Day Out with the Kids to find out which towns and cities have the most museums, libraries and soft play centres per 10,000 people.

They also calculated the number of Ofsted outstanding providers in each area.

Norwich ranked first in the survey, followed by Cambridge, Oxford, Brighton and Ipswich, who made up the top five.

The survey says Norwich has 1.03 parks and libraries per 10,000 people and 1.54 museums for every 10,000.

Norwich was sixth on the list of the number of outstanding Ofsted providers for every 10,000 people, with 1.9.
