These are the best views in the UK, according to the British public.

Loch Ness and Lake Windermere topped the list of places which inspire, delight and excite the nation, each taking 27% of the vote.

This was followed by London’s most famous landmarks, the London Eye and the Tower of London. St Ives Bay in Cornwall rounded off the top five.

Other vistas to make the list include Dorset’s Durdle Door, Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh and Northern Ireland’s Giant’s Causeway, as featured in Game of Thrones.

The research, by London North Eastern Railway (LNER), revealed two-thirds of Brits have desperately missed being able to visit UK beauty spots during the past year.
