The UK is now the second most popular country to visit after Australia and New Zealand, according to a new survey.
The survey of 5,000 people across the UK’s 25 largest cities found that in terms of popularity, it is the country with the second-most visitors to its borders.
The United States, with 2.7 million visitors in 2017, came in second with 2,936, followed by Australia with 2 of 3,928 visitors, followed closely by New Zealand with 2 people per 2,000, and the United Kingdom with 2 per 100,000.
But while Australia and the US are the most popular countries to visit, New Zealand has overtaken the UK as the second biggest in terms to visit per person.
In terms of visitors per person, New England is second behind the UK with 2 tourists per person while the US is ahead of New Zealand by a single person.
The top three countries to stay in are the United States with the third most people per square kilometre, followed in the bottom four by China and the UK.
The UK’s population is just over half of the US population.
The latest survey by the Migration Advisory Council found that more than half of UK residents aged 16-24 stayed in the country in 2017.
In 2019, more than 80 per cent of residents over 16 years old were living in the British Isles.
New Zealand and the USA were ranked as the most “friendly” countries to travel to by citizens.
