Jurassic Coast among landmarks Brits most want to visit as lockdown eases

charmouth beachTHE Jurassic Coast has been listed among the top landmarks Brits are most keen to visit post-pandemic. 

New data from Parkdean Resorts has revealed the top 50 UK landmarks that Brits are most looking forward to visit as lockdown restrictions are eased, with the 95-mile Jurassic Coast listed in eighth place.

The holiday resort company used Google search volumes to compare searches between March 2021 and April 2021, when outdoor lockdown restrictions began to lift, to compile the list.

The largest increase in search volumes was for the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, with other top landmarks including Buckingham Palace in London and Glastonbury Tor.

The Jurassic Coast was placed eighth place with a 49.16% per cent increase in Google searches. The coastline stretches 95 miles from Exmouth in Devon to Studland in Dorset with Lyme Regis at its heart.

It is England’s only natural World Heritage Site and was inscribed by UNESCO in 2001 for the outstanding universal value of its rocks, fossils and landforms.

As lockdown restrictions ease, Lyme Regis and the surrounding areas are making preparations for what could be a record-breaking summer, with a huge influx of visitors expected to make the most of ‘staycations’ in the UK rather than travelling abroad.
