Photos of Birmingham’s skyline brought in an average of 224 likes each, leading it to take the top spot.

Tourists might catch a glimpse of Birmingham’s Town Hall, the Mailbox or the iconic Selfridges building.

It’s an exciting year to visit the UK’s third biggest city as it prepares to host the Commonwealth Games this summer.

The city will host the Games from July 28 to August 8, welcoming some of the world’s top athletes.


Glasgow took second place in the skyline rankings. Visitors should head up to the city’s Necropolis cemetery for incredible city views.

The Necropolis is a Victorian cemetery perched high up above the city, offering stunning views of Glasgow Cathedral and hospital.

Tourists heading for a Glasgow staycation should visit the city’s West End area for independent cafes and delicious food.

Offering some of the UK’s best nightlife, Glasgow is a great night out and the perfect destination for a group of friends.

Salford had the UK’s least popular skyline with the average photo only gaining 31 likes on Instagram.

However, that shouldn’t put Britons off visiting the northern city which is home to an exciting art gallery.

Bristol had the UK’s second least attractive skyline, drawing in only 37 average likes per photo.

One of the UK’s trendiest cities, visitors to Bristol will be spoilt for choice when it comes to independent eateries and bars.
