British Airways' Shares A List Top British Landmarks in the 21st Century With Travellers from Kuwait

Kuwait, 23 August 2015: British Airways' High Life Magazine has identified the top landmarks that define Britain in the 21st century in a three month-long campaign where readers were invited to name the buildings – both historic and new – they felt exemplify the United Kingdom.

With daily flights from Kuwait to London Heathrow, residents in Kuwait can now choose from a list of top 21st century landmarks when planning their UK Holiday in 2015. 

Awarded the top landmark that defines the British skyline, was Cornwall's visitor attraction, The Eden Project that transformed a disused China clay pit into a 21st-century global garden. 

Only narrowly missing the top landmark spot was the Angel of the North - the campaign in itself received over 2,000 entries. A total of 150 landmarks were nominated by the public spanning the whole of the UK, including the Millennium Bridge, Grizedale Forest Sculpture Park and Edinburg Castle. The full list of the top 21 landmarks can be found on highlife.ba.com. 

Editor of High Life Kerry Smith said, 'The British skyline is moving on at an unprecedented pace – and in the quest to find the landmarks that define Britain in the 21st century, nominations ranged from Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage through to Stonehenge and the Shard. The final 21 landmarks celebrate British heritage along with the creative energy of the present.'

The list of nominated landmarks was then narrowed down by a distinguished panel of experts from across Britain including president of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Stephen Hodder; director of London's Whitechapel Gallery, Iwona Blazwick; architect and RIBA Worldwide and Civic Trust award winner, Will Alsop; BBC and ITV broadcaster Julia Bradbury and editor for High Life, Kerry Smith. 

Sir Tim Smit, co-founder of the Eden project said on the accolade ‘“To say Eden is the landmark that most defines 21st-century Britain is fantastically humbling. There is a rich palette to choose from and Britain as probably the creative capital of the world has set a high bar. British architecture has enjoyed a flowering both at home and abroad that is unparalleled and our architects Grimshaw and their team superbly brought our dream into reality.'

A full timetable of British Airways' flights to London and beyond is available online at ba.com, where customers can find the lowest fares and book, pay and check-in online for their flights.
