Belfast came in fourth in the list of UK destinations travellers should visit before they 'kick the bucket', with only Edinburgh, Bath and Liverpool ranked higher.

The city finished a place higher when it came to which place has the accent easiest on the ear. Only the folk of Edinburgh and Newcastle were considered to have more alluring brogues.

The questions were posed to 5,500 UK residents in the 'Bucket list' survey conducted by hotel chain Travelodge.

In regard to the places Belfast people want see before they cash in their chips, Oxford finished top, ahead of Edinburgh and London.

They are also voted the Newcastle accent as top of the pile.

"The UK is a great holiday destination and with 66 great cities to explore on our doorstep it can take a lifetime to see them all," he said.

"There is no time like the present to get out there and soak up the strong cultural diversity of these unique cities."
