YORK Minster has been named in the top 10 most 'Instagrammed man-made wonders’ in the UK.

With travel limited this year, many people have opted to enjoy the sights of the UK rather than go abroad.

Ahead of World Tourism Day on September 27, digital marketing company Extreme has revealed the most Instagrammed spots in the UK, with the historic Minster ranking fifth.

Topping the list is the ever-mysterious Stonehenge monument, having secured more than 790,000 tags from Instagrammers, making it the most popular man-made wonder in the country for snap-happy social media users.
