Liverpool, our magnificent city has yet again hit top marks in a recent survey! Liverpool has been named the third best destination in the UK for tourists and travellers to visit. Our iconic city received the accolade in the annual TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards, which are based on real reviews and opinions from people on the travel website.
The vote for third-place finish, can only be described as an amazing achievement, proving how friendly, safe and vibrant the city is. Finishing top of the hot list was London, followed by Edinburgh in 2nd place. TripAdvisor confirmed that the survey was determined by the quantity and quality of reviews based on ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions in the cities. Llandudno and Blackpool came fourth and fifth, with York finishing seventh, Glasgow came ninth and Manchester was ranked 10th.
Chris Brown, the director of Marketing Liverpool, said: “The greatest affirmation comes from the people who have spent their time and money to visit a destination, which is why the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards is so respected.
“Third place, behind London and Edinburgh, is a terrific achievement and the many businesses that make up our visitor economy should be proud.
“It’s a strong sign that the visitor economy, which is so important to the city region, is in rude health. From the moment they get here, visitors see that Liverpool is an extremely friendly, safe, vibrant city and are keen to tell others about it through TripAdvisor.”
London not only topped the UK rankings, but also topped the lists for Europe and the world.
TripAdvisor spokesperson James Kay said: “The destinations best rated by travellers are often those that marry value with great experiences, and Liverpool certainly ticks both boxes – the average room rate bookable on TripAdvisor is under £100 and is almost half the price of London.”
