The view from the top of Mount Snowdon taking in the sight of the lake Llyn Llydaw has been named the best view in Britain. The picturesque landscape topped a poll of more than 2,500 people, beating the Three Sisters mountains in Scotland and Stonehenge in Wiltshire to the top spot.

The study, carried out by Samsung to launch the new Galaxy S8 smartphone, highlighted the five key factors that make up a quintessentially British view. Rolling countryside was voted the most important, followed by rugged coastlines and country villages. Still, that didn't stop London's Westminster Bridge from being ranked above Loch Lomond and the Giant's Causeway.

Here's the nation's favorite vistas list in full.
