When you plan a holiday, there are loads of things to take into consideration. What will the weather be like? How long is the flight? Are the cocktails cheap? Unsurprisingly, working out what 'class' the destination falls into probably isn't high on the priority list.

But seeing as we've already been informed of the household items that apparently make us middle class, as well as finding out the poshest things from Ikea, travel locations seem to be the next obvious thing.

William Hanson, etiquette and protocol expert, tells Cosmopolitan UK the 10 holiday destinations that he deems to be middle class:

  • Provence, France
  • Dordogne, France
  • Tuscany, Italy
  • Algarve, Portugal
  • Devon, UK
  • Cornwall, UK
  • Mid to North Wales, UK
  • Florida, USA
  • Anywhere with a Yurt

While some of those listed above might seem fairly understandable (we're looking at you, Tuscany and Provence), others are potentially more unpredictable. A Yurt, for example? It's certainly interesting.

As with anything of this nature, it's worth taking a big pinch of salt alongside the list. But it is interesting to see what the etiquette expert categorises as 'middle class', especially those locations a little closer to home – Devon, Cornwall and mid to North Wales.
