THE BEST CITY IN THE UK FOR FOODIES
Six different factors were taken into consideration. The number of Michelin Star restaurants, the number of bakeries and cafés (according to TripAdvisor), and the number of five-star options on JustEat (using the centre of the city or town as set location) were all ranked in relation to the population of the towns and cities.
The price of a meal was calculated using Numbeo, by taking the median price of an ‘inexpensive meal’.
‘Instagram-ability’ was assessed by looking at the top 200 Instagram posts of each location, and working out the % of these that were images of food or drink.
The percentage of 5-star restaurants was worked out using a data-scraping tool for all restaurants for each location on TripAdvisor.
