The research also looked into working life for women across the whole of the UK.

Only four London boroughs made the top 10, but surprisingly places like Anglesey in Wales and Blackpool in the North West scored a place on the list.

As well as earnings, it also rated different regions based on gender wage gap, women as a percentage of the workforce, and the number of women employed as a manager, director or senior official.
