'Delightful': Most popular city in the UK named - and it's not London

Asia's Tech News Daily

Britons have named their favourite cities. The latest YouGov data showed which cities in the UK Britons like best.

UK cities have a lot to offer to holidaying Britons.

There is plenty to do and discover in cities all over the country.

But which is Britons’ favourite?

York topped the ranking.

The city was liked by 73 percent of Britons and disliked only by two percent.

With history aplenty, attractions such as York Minster and Jorvik Viking Centre, York is a fantastic holiday destination.

York is also home to the Shambles, the famous, quirky street that will make visitors believe they’ve stepped into Diagon Alley.

On the Tripadvisor Forum, Graham said: “A walk along the Shambles and Coppergate is delightful and if you have the time the Railway Museum is a must.”

And Bob wrote: “So many things to do, so much history to see. Beautiful city.”

In second place was Edinburgh, liked by 72 percent and disliked by five percent.

The Scottish capital has plenty to offer to visitors, from hiking up to Arthur’s Seat or Calton Hill to exploring history at the castle and the museums.

London came third, with 66 percent of Britons liking the capital, but 13 percent disliking it.

Rounding up the top five were Cambridge and Oxford, both liked by around 60 percent of Britons.

Around 30 percent of respondents were neutral towards the University towns.

The new data also looked at possible differences between men and women.

However, men put Brighton fourth.

Cambridge then came fifth.

Age was also found to make a difference on cities’ popularity.

Millennials ranked London first, followed by Edinburgh and York.
