London is the world's 'best tourist destination'

London has been voted the best destination for tourists to visit in the entire world, according to a survey of millions of travellers on travel website TripAdvisor.

With a host of reasons to visit London, including Buckingham Palace, Madame Tussauds, countless world-class museums, as well as fantastic nightlife and shopping opportunities, it may come as no surprise that the capital won the accolade.

As the Diamond Jubilee and London Olympic Games 2012 approach, this honour is a well-timed boost to London's credentials.

"To be crowned the world’s best destination in the Olympic year by millions of travellers is a tremendous honour for London," said Emma Shaw, TripAdvisor spokesperson.

"It’s fantastic to see the capital recognised and rewarded by those that have really experienced the city - travellers themselves."

New York and Rome followed behind London as the next best world destinations in the awards, while Edinburgh and Liverpool were the runner-up UK hotspots.
