According to a recent survey run by Tripadvisor, London is the UK’s most popular tourist destination in the UK, Europe and the world.
A spokewoman from Tripadvisor stated that;
“To be crowned the world’s best destination in the Olympic year by millions of travellers is a tremendous honour for London…it’s fantastic to see the capital recognised and rewarded by those that have really experienced the city – travellers themselves.”
What good timing…could this be a very well put together publicity stunt in time for the Olympics?
Either way, we’re not surprised that our capital has been crowned as the top destination to visit in the world, as London hen parties have long been a top choice for our hens. What makes our capital so appealing is not only the top notch choice of hotels, range of high quality restaurants, bars and clubs, but also the variety of choice in what it is possible to see and do there.
From the attractions such as the London Eye, the stunning architecture such as St Paul’s Cathedral, the theatres putting on world renowned musicals and plays, the daily and monthly events on offer all over the city and much much more, London is a melting pot of cultural pursuits. To beat New York to the top is proof of that.
In at second for the top UK destinations came Edinburgh, which every year, holds one of the most famous festivals in the world; Edinburgh Fringe Festival showcasing comedy, performance arts, music and all sorts of other cultural shows throughout the month of August. Again, Edinburgh hen parties are popular not only because this festival makes it a unique city to visit in August, but the city also offers beautiful castles, galleries, restaurants and a sophisticated nightlife scene.
