Two Norfolk locations have been named among the most picturesque places in the country.

The cliffs of Old Hunstanton and the shores of Blakeney have been placed in the top 20 of the UK's top Instagrammable places.

The poll of 2,000 adults by Sky Mobile, saw St Michael's Mount, in Cornwall, the Isle of Skye, in Scotland, and The Holy Island of Lindisfarne, in Northumberland, claim the top three spots in the top 20.

Coming in at number 15, just before Blakeney at number 16, it is no wonder the sandy shores feature in the list, as they are the only place on the east coast you can see the sunset over the sea in the west.

It emerged that 51% put beautiful landscapes at the top of their UK travel wishlists, with the same percentage believing this is key to securing the best photo of a stunning UK setting.

Unspoilt natural backgrounds, a sunrise or sunset and a lack of other people around are also key for the best shots, with adults taking an average of 15 snaps per trip.

The survey also found 39% of those who post on social media are likely to visit a rural picturesque destination, just to share pictures online.
