With its famous history, glorious architecture and lush green parks, perhaps it should come as no surprise to hear that London has been revealed as the most reviewed city in the world this year.
Review website giants TripAdvisor revealed that the capital was a favourite with its travellers in the site’s end-of-year summary.
The UK capital is also home to the UK’s most reviewed restaurant of 2014 – the Aqua Shard restaurant, based at the top of the Shard building, attracted more than 1,339 reviews in the last year alone.
Meanwhile, the London Eye is the UK’s most reviewed tourist attraction.
The Director of VisitLondon.com, Julie Chappell, said: “London continues to welcome many millions of visitors each year who come to experience the capital’s unparalleled blend of rich history and heritage, culture, and world famous attractions.
“London has experienced a post-Olympic 2012 tourism boost and in 2013, the city welcomed a record 16.8 million international visitors. It is fantastic news that visitors to our city are so engaged in sharing their experiences on TripAdvisor during their time here, that we have retained our position as the most reviewed city in the world.”
London has historically been a popular timeshare city break destination for American visitors, especially, who often tie in a shopping trip to the capital with a golfing holiday or sightseeing trips to Scotland.
The top ten most reviewed cities worldwide on TripAdvisor last year were:
4) New York City
6) Las Vegas
10) Rio de Janeiro
