The travel company has featured the top 12 sights in a new infographic, which includes some fun facts about each destination.
Kasha Dubaniewicz, project manager at Expedia, said:
“So many people now use Instagram to share their travel experiences with friends and family and it’s not hard to see why – the social network is free, easy to use and creates beautiful photos in a matter of moments.
“We wanted to find out which of the UK’s destinations prove the most popular with Instagram users, so we looked at the most-captured, most-hashtagged sites so far this year. While it’s not a surprise to see Big Ben at the top of the list, some of the others have proved to be a little more surprising.”
