Lavenham, known for its gothic architecture and history as a medieval wool town, scored highly across all categories and received five stars for its 'attractiveness' rating.

It fared slightly lower in one category, gaining only two stars out of five for shopping.

Which? Travel editor Rory Boland said: "From famed tourist towns to lesser-known villages, this year's survey has captured the range of unique destinations the UK has to offer.

"There are fantastic places to visit on your doorstep no matter where you live."

Bury St Edmunds also came 26th place in the list due to its high-quality food and drink options and for its 'peace and quiet'.
