Tower of London has been named as the best-rated landmark in the UK in the Travellers’ Choice TM awards for Landmarks, announced by the travel planning and booking site, TripAdvisor. The UNESCO World Heritage Site and home of the Crown Jewels, beat out last year’s winner, Big Ben, to claim the top spot. The historic London landmark has also been named the ninth best-rated landmark in Europe and jumped to 15th in the world – despite not making the world’s top 25 list, last year.

This year, in the world list, the Tower of London is honoured alongside the likes of Prague’s Old Town Square and Corcovado Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, while ranking above the likes of Athens’ Acropolis, Burj Khalifa in Dubai and the Great Wall of China.

Second place in the UK goes to London’s iconic Tower Bridge, while last year’s winner, Big Ben, dropped to third, as the world-famous clock remains silent during preservation works.

Laura Citron, CEO London & Partners, the Mayor of London’s official promotional agency for the capital said, “London’s iconic landmarks continue to attract and captivate visitors of all ages from all over the world and we are delighted that they have been rated so highly by TripAdvisor travellers.

“The Tower of London is a very special jewel in London's crown so it's great to see the historic palace at number one nearly 1000 years on!”

Travellers’ Choice Landmarks awards honour top landmarks worldwide based on the millions of valuable reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor travellers. Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews for landmarks worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period.

“This year’s awards show that London’s iconic landmarks remain ever popular with global travellers and those planning a visit this summer would be wise to plan ahead, if they want to beat the queues. TripAdvisor offers skip-the-line tickets for many of the UK’s best-rated attractions, so travellers can book online and spend their holidays seeing the sights, instead of waiting in a queue outside,” commented TripAdvisor spokesperson, Hayley Coleman.

London leads as capital boasts six of the UK’s best-rated landmarks

London continues to lead the way in the UK, with six landmarks cracking the top ten – the capital also nabbed the top three spots for the third year in a row. Tower of London takes the top spot followed by Tower Bridge in second. Last year’s winner Big Ben dropped to third spot, as the sight undergoes essential works. Westminster Abbey came in sixth place, while Buckingham Palace and St Paul’s Cathedral take ninth and tenth position, respectively.
