Liverpool big hit with TripAdvisor

Liverpool has today been named the best-rated destination in the UK – after the two capital cities of London and Edinburgh.

The TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice awards for Destinations recognise the locations that are the most popular among TripAdvisor reviewers based on millions of reviews and opinions.

Award winners were determined using an algorithm based on reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants and experiences in destinations worldwide over a 12-month period.

The methodology takes into account quality and volume of reviews to surface destinations that consistently deliver the best overall experience for travellers.

Events like the Giant Spectacle and the Terracotta Warriors visit in 2018 are expected to have played a major part in the city’s ratings.
