Do you know how much a square metre of space in your house is worth? New figures have revealed the priciest places for property – and the cheapest.

Chelmsford topped the charts in Essex at a cost of £3,704 per square metre, but was left lagging behind the East of England’s costliest city, Cambridge, where a square metre of space will set you back an eye-watering £5,474.

In Suffolk, St Edmundsbury was the most expensive at £2,569 per square metre, while Waveney propped up the table at £1,814.

Nationally, the most expensive place to buy was in Kensington in London, where a single square metre of property will set the average buyer back more than £19,000.
