From Snowdonia to Stonehenge, a nationwide study has revealed the top 20 greatest British Views.

Ancient and modern sights were celebrated as part of the study, which found the view of Llyn Llydaw from Mount Snowdon summit in Wales to be the best in the country.

This was closely followed by the Scottish Highlands and Stonehenge.

More than 2,500 people took part in the study which asked respondents to vote from a longlist of incredible views, created by travel exerpts from publications such as Rough Guides, Wanderlust and Good Housekeeping.

No East Anglian views made it onto the final list, despite the county boasting some incredibly picturesque spots - such as The Broads, and north Norfolk coast.

The full list of the 20 greatest British views is:

1. Snowdonia – view of Llyn Llydaw from Mount Snowdon summit, Wales

2. Scottish Highlands – view of Three Sisters mountains, Glencoe Valley, Scotland

3. Stonehenge, Wiltshire, England
