To explore somewhere unique, loveholidays, the UK’s fastest growing online travel agency, delved into 5 Guinness World Record books to discover previous, record-holding attractions from around the world.

Looking at the 2021 Guinness World Record book, loveholidays compared the most recent record holders against their predecessors from 2015, 2010, 2005 and 2000.

Now we know where these record-breaking attractions are located we can add them to our bucket list.

Across the world there are many spectacular skyscrapers worthy of a visit, The 21st Century Tower in Dubai held the world record for the world’s “Tallest Residential building”. Standing at 883 feet tall with 55 stories. Then in 2019, the Central Park Tower in New York stole its title with the impressive Manhattan skyscraper standing at 1550 ft with 98 floors.

For those that love a spot of retail therapy, West Edmonton Mall, Canada, was once the place to be! It was previously known as the world’s largest shopping centre and set across 5.3 million square feet it wasn’t hard to see why. However, West Edmonton Hall was knocked off the top spot by the Dubai Mall in 2008. The famous shopping centre covering 5.4 million square feet now holds the crown for the “World’s Largest Shopping Centre”.

If heights are your thing, you may be familiar with the CN tower in Toronto. Once the world’s “Tallest Freestanding Structure”, this landmark was also declared as one of the Modern Seven Wonders of the world! It held on to its title for 32 years, until the Burj Khalifa in Dubai pinched the record.

To see all ‘Once Famous’ landmarks head to the loveholidays map featuring all locations.
