London and the Caribbean have topped a poll this week by British Airways on the destinations the public would most like to visit this winter.
Britain’s capital came in first due to its great shopping and the Caribbean’s warmth and beauty secured it a close second place.
Followers of the airline on Facebook listed the top five slots as:
- The Caribbean
- New York
- Cape Town
As the weather chills, many respondents also suggested that ‘anywhere warm and sunny’ would be a winter winner with them.
And perhaps unsurprisingly, visiting friends and family or returning home was a popular reason for people to travel in the winter season.
Richard Tams, British Airways’ head of UK&I sales, said: “London is a fantastic winter destination, with great shopping and plenty to do for both residents and overseas visitors. Equally, the thought of relaxing on a stunning beach, in the warm and friendly Caribbean is a real draw as the winter closes in.
“We’ve had a great response to our Facebook poll which just shows how exciting and inspiring travel continues to be.”
