Blenheim Palace named in the Top 20 most visited world heritage sites, a new poll has revealed.

A survey by Sykes Cottages found that the palace in Woodstock was the 13th most visited landmark in the country.

It found that 15 per cent of more than 2000 Brits quizzed had visited the site.

The Tower of London was named as the most visited World Heritage Site, visited by 42 per cent  of those polled, followed by the City of Bath 32 per cent and Stonehenge 31 per cent.

Tom Lowes, Head of Online Marketing at Sykes Cottages, said: “It’s easy to forget how lucky we are to have so many sites of natural beauty and historical importance on our doorstep.

"It’s staggering that a huge one in ten Brits have never visited one of our National Parks; whether you’re looking for a country stroll, a good hike or even just to sit quietly in a pub and take in the view, they truly have something for everyone."
