Bath took third place on the list and is best known for its incredible Roman history and ancient baths.
Although tourists can’t take in the Roman baths, they will be able to relax at the city’s spa instead.
Bristol was the greenest city on the list while London had some of the most city-centre attractions.
Brighton, Inverness and Cambridge had the lowest levels of air pollution of any of the cities in the rankings.
Matt Fox, CEO and co-founder of LateRooms.com, said: “UK city breaks are as popular as ever and with spring around the corner, impromptu weekends away offer a great way to see and experience somewhere new.
“Getting to see all of the best sights somewhere has to offer in a short space of time can be hard work, but doing it on foot guarantees you’ll see so much more and stay active in the process too.
“All of Britain’s varied and historic cities offer something different and you can pack so much in without needing to set foot in a vehicle in almost all of them.”
Glasgow, Cardiff, Newcastle and Coventry were the least walkable cities in the top 20 rankings.
