HOUSE prices in cities have reached an all-time high in comparison to similar houses in the countryside, figures release by Halifax have shown.

City house prices across the UK have gone up by £131 a week in the last decade – seven per cent more than the average home in more rural areas.

Despite the rise, Portsmouth is still a much cheaper place to buy a home than in the rest of Hampshire.

Homes in the city typically cost £141,871 which is 31 per cent below usual levels for the county.
