Hurrah! London’s beaten New York, Rome and Paris to be named the best place to visit on the planet.
Compiled by tourist feedback website TripAdvisor, London came eighth place on the league table last year, while in 2010 it didn’t feature at all.
Emma Shaw, director of TripAdvisor, said: “The capital has been very much in the spotlight over the past few years, thanks to the royal wedding, Diamond Jubilee and, of course, the Olympics, and we’re seeing travellers experience London in an increasingly favourable way.”
