Ipswich may not immediately strike you as the place to take a UK vacation, however TripAdvisor has revealed the winners of the 2020 Travellers’ Choice Destination awards – and it’s been voted as the top ’emerging destination’ in the country.

The Suffolk town is the only British destination in the global ranking for this category – meaning it must be pretty special.

So what does ’emerging’ actually mean? Well, TripAdvisor defines these places as being ‘ahead of the curve’, destinations that ‘smart travellers are already saving to their “Trips” on TripAdvisor’.

The UK town comes 14th in the list, with Kaliningrad in Russia in the top spot, followed by Saranda in Albania, Beirut, Luxor and Naoussa in Greece.
