The Jurassic coast, a 95 mile stretch from Exmouth in Devon to Old Harry Rocks in Dorset, is the most visited wonder according to the report. With roughly 31% of people surveyed having been to at least one part of it.

The Isle of Wight also made the list with The Needles, a place many will be familiar with because of the Round the Island Race.

Only 10% of adults could name all seven places on the list. But, 44% said they would be open to exploring new places after the pandemic.

With summer around the corner, the society is urging people to go out and explore here in the UK. They say you could be amazed at what you might find on your doorstep.
