Twelve most Instagrammed spots in UK revealed

Liverpool’s Anfield football ground is only beaten by Big Ben to top a list of the 12 most Instagrammed spots in the UK complied by Expedia.

Expedia looked at the volume of Instagram posts and number of unique hashtags over the past year to come up with the list.

Big Ben, with more than 2.5 million Instagram posts this year, is far and away the most captured UK sight on the social network.

Anfield had more than 490,000 snaps in the year and is the second most popular UK sight ahead of Stonehenge with more than 454,000 posts.

Fourth is the New Forest with more than 363,000 and fifth is Snowdonia in Wales with more than 360,000.

The photo-based social network has spiked in popularity in recent years, and now has 800 million active monthly users, many who ‘Insta’ their holidays, experiences and day-to-day lives.

Expedia project manager Kasha Dubaniewicz said: “So many people now use Instagram to share their travel experiences with friends and family and it’s not hard to see why – the social network is free, easy to use and creates beautiful photos in a matter of moments.

“We wanted to find out which of the UK’s destinations prove the most popular with Instagram users, so we looked at the most-captured, most-hashtagged sites so far this year.

“While it’s not a surprise to see Big Ben at the top of the list, some of the others have proved to be a little more surprising.”
