Here in Manchester, we like to think we’re the UK’s second city.
But of course, Birmingham is vying with us for the spot, and you know, we’re not ones to shy away from a healthy rivalry.
But we’re still pretty gutted to learn that more Brits have visited Brum than here.
New figures show that 64% of Brits say that they have made a trip to the West Midlands – presumably for the likes of Bull Ring shopping and Aston Villa’s Championship football.
Comparatively, 62% of Brits say they have visited Manchester.
The research from YouGov Omnibus surveyed more than 8,000 Brits on which of 22 British cities and 11 foreign cities they had ever visited.
They say: “Unsurprisingly, London was the city from the list that Britons are most likely to have visited, with 86% having found themselves in the capital at some point.
After that came Birmingham and Manchester.
In fourth place was Edinburgh, at 55%.
Oddly, the survey also revealed that Brits are slightly more likely to have visited the French capital than the Scottish capital, with 57% saying they have been to Paris.
In second place of most likely European destinations was the Dutch capital of Amsterdam, which 42% of Brits say they have visited, making the city more likely to have been frequented than Nottingham (41%).
Other most-visited foreign cities from the list included Dublin (33%), Rome (28%) and New York (27%).
