GWR have some of the most beautiful areas of the UK on their network and to find out which destinations have been shared on social media, we ran a study to discover where in London, South Wales and the South West of England have people reaching for their cameras the most.

To gather the data, GWR has sourced the top 50 attractions and areas of interest from Google UK for London and each county and major city in the South West and South Wales. This was then cross referenced with photos of the locations uploaded to Instagram over a six month period.

Below you’ll find a list of the most photogenic attractions in London, South Wales and the South West of England*.

* Data methodology: The Top 50 most popular attractions and things to do in London and each county and major city in the South West and South Wales were gathered from Google UK and then imputed into Social Listening tool Sysomos. Each attraction and its corresponding mentions and hashtags were searched for on Instagram and cross referenced with the county or city it was taken over a 6 month period (1st December 2016 – 31st May 2017).
