Liverpool just behind the Edinburgh's Royal Yacht Britannia in TripAdvisor's UK Top 10

THE Royal Yacht Britannia, in Edinburgh, comes in 8th in the overall rankings, with The Cavern Club, in Liverpool pushing hard, and holding at 9th, for the 5th year running.

Just like the music charts, things move around, as last year The Cavern Club was rated higher than Buckingham Palace, who this year came in at 6th. Oddly Buckingham Palace within the 'Excellent' reviews has only managed to get 53% over all, as opposed to The Cavern Club's 71% 'Excellent' reviews and The Royal Yacht Britannia's 72% 'Excellent' reviews... That means on the 'Excellent' reviews side, it gives us a totally different story, as if you go by them alone, the Royal Yacht Britannia came in 1st and The Cavern Club in close 2nd place, by just 1% separating them both. This is a fantastic achievement, considering the many other UK attractions that they both had to battle against. 

The Cavern Club, known as the birth place of the Beatles nightclub, on Mathews Street, it's director Bill Heckle said:- "We’re really pleased to maintain our place in the top 10 UK landmarks for 2017, particularly in a year where the Cavern is celebrating its 60th Anniversary. And it's great to be able to fly the flag for Liverpool in a list that is still dominated by London attractions. There are still a number of special events taking place during our year long celebrations. So as well as welcoming even more visitors to Mathew Street, we hope they will also feel inspired to share their experiences of the club with TripAdvisor. We hope that in 2018, we might be able to shoot up the charts even further!  Considering what we have been listed along the side of, it is extremely humberling to have achieved this yet again.  This years rating this shows just how hard and how good our staff at looking after our guests."

Delighted with the news, Britannia's Chief Executive Bob Downie said:- "Being included in TripAdvisor's Top 10 for 5 years in a row is a real testament to our excellent staff, who consistently provide great customer experiences that lead to such positive feedback from our visitors. There is a significant difference in the quality standards required to gain a 5 star Excellent review than a 4 star Very Good review – the former crucial in convincing new customers to invest their time in visiting your attraction."

Tripadvisor's Top 10 UK Travellers Choice Landmarks Awards:-




% Excellent
1 Big Ben London 69%
2 Tower of London London 65%
3 Tower Bridge London 62%
4 Edinburgh Castle Edinburgh 58%

6 Buckingham Palace London 53%
7 The Roman Baths Bath 70%
8 The Royal Yacht Britannia Edinburgh 72%
9 The Cavern Club Liverpool 71%
10 St Paul's Cathedral London 63%

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 takes into account the quantity and quality of reviews for landmarks worldwide, gathered over a 12 month period.  This success for Britannia, follows on from the iconic attraction reporting 2016, as its most successful year since opening 18 years ago, with 348,272 visitors in 2016 and this year, 22% up on all previous records. The iconic yacht has also been rated by national tourism agency, VisitScotland's quality assessors, as Scotland's Best Visitor Attraction for the 11th successive year.

Malcolm Roughead, Chief Executive at VisitScotland, said:- "We're delighted that 2 of Scotland's leading attractions feature in the Travellers' Choice top 10, reflecting the worldwide appeal of these iconic landmarks and the quality of the visitor experience. Scotland's history and heritage attracts millions of visitors from around the world and top attractions in Edinburgh such as these are why the Scottish capital remains a must visit destination for travellers."
