Holiday Homes?


The south-west is known as a place where there are many second homes. In some villages, so many of the homes are empty for much of the year, or are simply holiday homes, that living there can seem even quieter than you would expect.

Above is Newquay, the capital of surfing in the south-west and a place that shows a huge variation the proportion of houses “with no usual resident” as you move across the town from east to west.

“Prime Central London” is a strange place, where the super-wealthy buy homes but then don’t necessarily live in them. The boundaries of Prime Central London can be seen quite sharply – with the proportion of homes that are often empty falling away quickly as soon as soon as “real London” is encountered.

  1. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but
    it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques to help
    prevent content from being stolen? I’d certainly
    appreciate it.

  3. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a
    blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I found this during my hunt for something relating to this.

  4. Online education is perfect for everyone who is considering changing their career or are thinking about further studies
    while they are working. Students can gain the accredited
    education they demand by signing up for one of many available
    programs. When a student is sleeping only a few hours per night, every minute counts.
