The People Have Spoken Liverpool's Hope Street

The People Have Spoken

The votes are in and Liverpool has been named our nation’s third best destination for travellers.

The city received the accolade in the annual TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards, which are based on real reviews and opinions from people on the travel website.

Liverpool was beaten only be two of our nation’s Capitals, London and Edinburgh in the awards, which were determined by an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions, a TripAdvisor spokesman said.

“The greatest affirmation comes from the people who have spent their time and money to visit a destination…”

Chris Brown, the director of Marketing Liverpool, said: “The greatest affirmation comes from the people who have spent their time and money to visit a destination, which is why the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards is so respected.

“Third place, behind London and Edinburgh, is a terrific achievement and the many businesses that make up our visitor economy should be proud.

“It’s a strong sign that the visitor economy, which is so important to the city region, is in rude health. From the moment they get here, visitors see that Liverpool is an extremely friendly, safe, vibrant city and are keen to tell others about it through TripAdvisor.”

London not only topped the UK rankings, but also topped the lists for Europe and the world.

TripAdvisor spokesperson James Kay said: “The destinations best rated by travellers are often those that marry value with great experiences, and Liverpool certainly ticks both boxes - the average room rate bookable on TripAdvisor is under £100 and is almost half the price of London.”
