It is quite an achievement according to Car Hire Edinburgh Airport to have their city in the top ten of a major review website.
Edinburgh is considered the second best visitor destination in the UK behind London according to review site TripAdvisor. The rest of the top ten had Torquay in third place followed by Liverpool and Belfast rounding out the top five. In sixth was York, Bristol was voted in at seven, Llandudno in Wales came eighth, Leeds was ninth and Birmingham tenth.
Mike Cantlay, chairman of VisitScotland, said “It’s great to see that Edinburgh is continually recognised as one of the best destinations in the UK and Europe. The inspiring capital of Scotland is also the world’s festival capital, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and boasts world-class attractions, striking architecture, a fascinating history and unbelievable food and drink.”
Some of the places to drop from the top ten included Manchester and Blackpool. World travellers voted London in as the third best global destination.
TripAdvisor spokesman James Kay said “These awards are based on millions of reviews and ratings by those that really matter — travellers themselves. There is no doubt the birth of the royal baby helped keep the eyes of the world on London in 2013, but the capital’s continued appeal among travellers around the world surpasses any one event.”
