The Telegraph says that the results read "more like a fantasy football league than a list of the UK's finest destinations". Writer Brian Jackman calls Torquay a "sprawling metropolis": "the self-styled Queen of the English Riviera has become a raddled old monarch, expanding around Torbay like a giant octopus whose gridlocked tentacles now reach out to envelop Babbacombe, Paignton and Brixham".
TripAdvisor spokesman James Kay told the Evening Standard: "These awards are based on millions of reviews and ratings by those that really matter - travellers themselves.
"There is no doubt the birth of the royal baby helped keep the eyes of the world on London in 2013, but the capital's continued appeal among travellers around the world surpasses any one event."
