British city named the No.1 holiday destination in Europe this year – according to TripAdvisor | The Sun

LONDON has been named the best holiday destination in Europe this year, according to TripAdvisor.

Every year, the website analyses the millions of reviews submitted on its platform to reveal the definitive travel list for the year, as chosen by globetrotters across the world.

The Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best Destination Awards looks at the quantity and quality of reviews for international destinations and highlights the most popular and up and coming destinations for the year ahead.

Of all the cities in Europe, London was rated the highest in the overall rankings, with only Dubai and Bali seen as better destinations worldwide.

Rome, Paris and Crete were the only other European destinations to grace the top 10, coming in fourth, fifth and seventh respectively.

The England capital was joined in the European top 10 by Edinburgh, which came 10th behind Istanbul, Barcelona, Madrid, Florence and Lisbon.
