The study by personal security provider TakingCare found that the city is the most popular place to live for the UK’s elderly population.
About 33 per cent of Brighton residents are aged 65 and over, with an average life expectancy of 84 years, higher than the UK average of 81 years.
The city was ranked seventh in a list of top cities for the cost of care, but was ranked as one of the worst places to retire due to a lack of bingo halls, English heritage and proportion of care homes.
Llandudno in Wales topped this table, followed by Glossop in Derbyshire and Southport.
Louise Yasities, Home Security Expert at TakingCare Personal Alarms, said: “As we get older, new things become more important to us.
“Moving to a place that is not only a fantastic place to live but also offers the services required for elder care is crucial for the over 65 age group.
“As average life expectancies increase, empowering older people to live happily and independently at home for as long as possible is more important than ever, and the data points we analyzed in this report address that.”
The report comes after census data showed there had been a rise in ‘boomers’ living in the city, with the number of people aged between 50 and 74 living in Brighton and Hove increasing dramatically over the past decade.
