For a second consecutive year, New York has ranked as the number one most visited destination for UK travellers in 2015 ahead of other cities across North America, Europe and Asia.

For travellers coming the other way, to the UK, Belfast is the seventh most visited place with London the number one destination.

The latest data from Hotels.com (a regular report based on actual prices paid in 2015 compared with 2014) indicates that the majority of people from the UK still favour journeying to the Big Apple over other popular holiday destinations while Mallorca got the biggest rise in holidaymakers this year.

The UK’s top five inbound destinations have maintained their positions for another year, with London holding on to first place. Edinburgh, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow follow behind consecutively.

Belfast maintained its position at number seven despite stiff competition from Brighton and Aberdeen.
