It has a fascinating blend of rich heritage, distinguished history and all the energy and vigour you would expect of one of the fastest growing, modern, commercial towns in the UK. The county is part of a designated government growth area, which will see significant development and consequent population growth over the next 25 years. The population of the town is predicted to increase by more than 50,000 people by 2021 so you will always be kept busy!
If you like sports, the city has successful Rugby Union and County Cricket Teams for you to go and watch, as well as a slightly less successful Football team.
