    ooooh, right, why are they richer? I think that Surrey is supposed to be the most expensive place to buy property etc, why is that?

    I live in the most expensive area of surrey (def not the most expensive house tho lol), but its nothing compared to areas like Putney, Barnes, Sheen, Hammersmith, Kensington and Chelsea etc in terms of house prices. (btw I have SW London as my area as I went to school there and exclusively go out there). You cant get a four bedroom house in Sheen for less than a 800k, and a detached one far far more.

    Another millionaire hot spot is in the Forest of Bowland in Lancashire.
