A new survey has revealed that most British holidaymakers would like to see Egyptian pyramids at least once in their lifetime.

According to the poll carried out by Sunshine.co.uk on 1,489 people, the pyramids have emerged as the top must-see landmarks, with 89% of the respondents voting for the Egyptian structures.

In the list of must-see spectacles, the Northern Lights came second with 77% of people polled opting for them.

The Taj Mahal, the Statue of Liberty and Niagara Falls also made it into the top 10.

Australia's Great Barrier Reef, Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, the Grand Canyon in Arizona and the canals of Venice are the other spectacles included in the list.

A comprehensive travel insurance policy could be useful for tourists planning a trip abroad to see these famous landmarks.

Despite being able to opt for any world landmark, 19% of Britons said they would like to see Big Ben before they died.

"It was no surprise to see sights like the northern lights and Grand Canyon in the top 10, but Big Ben was a bit of a mystery," Sunshine.co.uk co-founder Chris Brown said.
