TripAdvisor Reveals the World’s Most Popular Tours and Attractions for 2017

With the arrival of summer, TripAdvisor recently looked at the top trending tours and attractions around the world, and Warner Bros. Studio Tour London: The Making of Harry Potter continues to be one of the top attractions in the UK!   



When it comes to keeping the kids occupied during the school summer break, TripAdvisor’s top trending tours and attractions might just be the ticket.

Jetting off to Italy? Don’t miss out on a Skip the Line tour of the Vatican, which has taken the title of 2017’s most booked on the travel site.

And if you’re in England, why not take in a bit of history with an ever-popular day trip to Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Bath?

TripAdvisor’s latest findings are based on bookings made since January 2016 to date, measuring the most popular attractions with the greatest increase in traveller interest. In their world top 10, it was the Skip the Line tour of the Vatican Museums, St Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel that took top honors.

During this much-loved three-hour tour, visitors have the opportunity to explore the Vatican as part of a small group led by a knowledgeable guide – and, of course, to jump to the front of the site’s notoriously long queues. In the UK, it was an 11-hour guided tour of Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Bath that proved to be most popular.

In fact, five of the UK’s top booked tours are located in London, while four of the world’s top 10 booked tours are found in Rome.

And no matter where you visit, Skip the Line and Hop-On-Hop-Off Tours continue to be crowd pleasers.  These tours often feature other added benefits not available to general admission ticket holders, as well as flexibility to choose your own itinerary and pace.

Though it’s the Stonehenge tour that’s the UK’s most booked, it’s Harry Potter who is dominating the UK’s top 10. In at #5 is a Making of Harry Potter tour at the Warner Brothers Studio in Leavesden in Hertfordshire, complete with luxury transportation from London. Two London-based Harry Potter studio tours, meanwhile, rank eighth and ninth.  Despite the fact that it’s been 20 years since the release of Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone, Britain’s favorite wizard shows no signs of losing his magic.
