Manchester has been named as the second best location to visit in the UK, according to a recent research by TripAdvisor.
The travel website announced its 2013 Travellers’ Choice Destinations Awards, revealing the favourite destinations as chosen by holidaymakers around the world.
London was picked as the top UK location, with student city Manchester taking second place followed by Glasgow in Scotland. Liverpool, another popular student destination in the country, came in fourth position, while Belfast was picked as fifth best place to visit in the UK.
Spokesman for TripAdvisor Angus Struthers said: “Now that the Jubilympics are over it’s vital that UK tourism continues to flourish so it’s great news that London is rated so highly among the world’s and Europe’s best destinations.”
TripAdvisor’s survey carries a lot of weight after the review website revealed in March that it had reached a milestone with 100 million reviews and opinions being submitted on to the site. This also represents a 50% rise over the previous 12 months.
