Google search data has identified the ten UK landmarks that Brits want to visit the most as lockdown and Covid-19 restrictions begin to ease.
The research revealed that Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, Radcliffe Camera in Oxford and Buckingham Palace in London are the top three places people are most interested in visiting.
Using Google search volumes to compare searches between March 2021 and April 2021 (when outdoor lockdown restrictions began to lift), holiday company Parkdean Resorts identified the top 50 UK landmarks Brits are most looking forward to visiting, reports Wales Online.
Parkdean said: “Spinnaker Tower tops the list with a 122.89% increase in searches between February and March. Providing coastal views and its proximity to both the sea and to amenities such as Gunwharf Quays, it’s no surprise to see Spinnaker Tower topping the list.
“In second place is Radcliffe Camera in Oxford, with a 102.6% increase. Featuring incredible architecture and its association with Oxford University, Radcliffe Camera is an icon in Oxford and perfect for photography.
“In third is Buckingham Palace, perhaps unsurprisingly given how much people in the UK love the Royal Family and following the death of Prince Phillip, Brits are looking to visit the icon of the capital city and pay their respects.”
Last month a survey found that nearly three in 10 (28%) people have booked a UK-based staycation this year.
More than half (53%) of people are planning to book a UK getaway, according to American Express.
On average, people have spent £353 per person on staycation bookings.
Wales and the Lake District were the top destinations, followed by Cornwall and the Scottish Highlands.
People booking staycations are advised that lockdown restrictions are easing at different rates across the UK, and to check cancellation policies in case a trip cannot go ahead.
