Three-quarters also value their health, with pride in the NHS pushing the service to number three on the list.
More than half of those who took part said holidays and short breaks were essential to get them through the year.
he study found almost half felt the country was more community minded and appreciated their neighbours more since the pandemic.
Over a third reported that they appreciate having lots of seaside resorts and coastal locations easy to get too around the British coastline, whilst 30 per cent of adults enjoy being at one with nature.
