Ask.com Releases List of Top 25 UK Bank Holiday Destinations

This is a cool list. And a great reason to put out a press release, I might add. Ask.com, one of the top leading search engines on the web, has come up with a list of the top twenty five United Kingdom bank holiday destinations for this weekend.

According to Ask.com, Chester Zoo claims the top spot on the list as Britain’s most searched-for attraction. Also according to Ask.com, Britain’s zoos “can bank on a rush of business this weekend – as families use the Internet to help plan their day-trip outings. They say that nine of the most searched-for Bank Holiday family days out in the UK are zoos.

While London is one of the top search results, five out of the top ten attractions in the United Kingdom are in the capital.

Chester Zoo is obviously an outdoor attraction, and the weather might put a damper on things this weekend. So, Ask.com looked at the top indoor attractions, as well, including the the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum and the Imperial War Museum. Those are high in the list of top searched-for attractions.

It has always been my thought that the number of searches on the web closely resemble the popularity of those terms and topics in real life. So, without further adieu, let’s take a look at the list of Britain’s top 25 bank holiday destinations according to Ask.com:
