Coming in just behind in second place was the village Llanberis, which is on a lake and at the foot of Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales.
With watersports, craft shops and walks in abundance, there is plenty for visitors to do in Gwynedd.
Coming in at third was Fulford in North Yorkshire, which is just on the outskirts of York and sits near the River Nidd.
At fourth was South Queensferry which is near Edinburgh in Scotland, and, as its name suggests, is on the water, and was once the main ferry terminal over to Fife.
Rounding out the top five was Appleby-in-Westmorland in Cumbria which is in between the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the Northern Pennines, so plenty of walks nearby.
In sixth place was Manchester, followed by the first southern destination on the list Oxford, which narrowly beat its university counterpart city Cambridge which came in at eighth.
The only other southern spot to make the list was Brighton at number nine and Glasgow rounded off the list at number 10.
