Banbury is currently second in a competition to find the most loveable and likeable town in the UK, and it needs your vote before the deadline ends next month.

International online booking platform Hotel Info are looking for the most loveable or liveable small to medium-sized town in the country, with Banbury up against towns such as Durham, Lancaster and Stratford-upon-Avon.

The 30 towns selected have to meet a certain criteria, with all having less than 60,000 inhabitants and boasting tourist attractions such as a historial institution or town centre.

And with the famous nursery rhyme of Ride a Cock Horse familiar with many people in the area, Banbury’s rich history surely gives them a good case.

The town has 179 votes at the moment and sit above the Lancashire town of Chorley on 159. But both are some way off the town of Ramsgate in Kent who have an impressive 617 votes.

The deadline for voting is on Tuesday, July 7. To vote for Banbury click here
