Britain’s modern tourist attractions are now more desirable places to visit than our historical sites, according to research looking into Brits’ bucket lists.

Last minute cottage holiday provider Snaptrip.com asked more than 2,000 Brits to create their own ‘British Bucket List’ to find out which UK attractions they would most like to visit before they die.

Topping the list was the Eden Project in Cornwall, which was added to almost one in five bucket lists, followed by Stonehenge in Wiltshire in second place.

The Making of Harry Potter Warner Bros. Studio Tour in Watford came in a close third, with 15% of Brits adding it to their bucket list. The boy wizard proved even more popular among 16 to 24 year olds, with the studio tour taking first place on a quarter (24%) of bucket lists from that age group, followed by Platform 93/4 at London King’s Cross, which was the second most popular choice.

Despite only opening fully to the public in 2013, England’s tallest building, The Shard, in London, claimed a place in the top five, alongside another modern must-visit, Glastonbury Festival. Looking at how tastes differ around the UK, people in Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Liverpool, Cardiff and Southampton all named the Eden Project as the attraction they would most like to visit, with Stonehenge taking the top spot with Sheffield, Leeds and Manchester locals.

However, it seems Plymouth is home to most music fans as they placed Glastonbury Festival top of their city’s bucket list, whereas those from Nottingham would prefer to take a trip on the London Eye.
