Buckingham Palace Named Top Tourist Attraction.
In a recent YouGov Survey, almost one third of voters named Buckingham Palace the Top Tourist Attraction in Britain. The Palace is definately the focus of some major celebrations this year. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee being the big one. It’s no wonder the voters think it’s the best landmark in the Country. The Houses of Pariliament and Stonehenge were voted second best tourist attractions.
The UK does have many fun attractions, and many historical attractions. With the Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 Olympics in July. There will be even more reason to take a trip to London. If you are traveling to the UK this Summer get the lowdown on cheap flight offers. If you want to see a little more than London, here are a few other great sites in the UK.
Other Top Tourist Attraction Named In The Poll.
The Tower of London.
The White Cliffs of Dover.
Windermere, (a town in Cumbria, Lake District).
I would also like to add Westminster Abbey, London; Windsor Abbey, Windsor; Grand Opera House, Belfast. The Royal Albert Hall, London; Warwick Castle, Warwickshire; and Albert Dock, Liverpool.
My personal choice would be to visit the regenerated site of the Harland and Wolff shipyard, Belfast, Northern Ireland. “Titanic Belfast”, is being completed in time for the 100th anniversary of it’s sinking, on 15 April 2012. See the Jump into Ireland special offer.
The new 3D release of the movie Titanic (originally released in 1997). Is now showing at cinemas, I remember quite a group of us went to see it back then. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would, it was a good night out at the movies.
If you agree with the YouGov voters in naming Buckingham Palace Top Tourist Attraction. Don’t forget the Palace is open for tours.
