Glasgow tops favourite UK city list

Glasgow has stolen the top spot from London as the favourite UK city to visit, according to the readers of Condé Nast Traveller magazine.

At the luxury consumer magazine's Reader Travel Awards last night, Glasgow was named favourite followed by Edinburgh, with London demoted to third.

Italy won the overall best country to visit category, and bagged a host of awards with Rome named favourite overall city and Hotel Splendido in Portofino named the best leisure hotel in Europe, Asia Minor and Russia.

Sarah Miller, Condé Nast Traveller's editor, said: "It's a tribute to the fantastic diversity that a country like Italy offers. All in all Italy's got it and our readers, who are the most discerning in the world, couldn't have given a better endorsement."

Chewton Glen was named as the top UK leisure hotel and London's Dorchester hotel was voted the best UK business property.

The Spa at the Four Seasons hotel in Hampshire was a new entry but stormed in to win top UK hotel spa, knocking Sequoia at the Grove hotel in Hertfordshire off pole-position.
