Four attractions and buildings from across the North West have been selected to be shortlisted in’s Window with a View competition, including Manchester’s very own City Tower, Refuge and Manchester House restaurant.

Launched in 2016 by the independent consumer support website which offers free advice to homeowners, the competition returned for its third year in February 2018 in the quest to find the UK’s best Window with a View.

Now, last year’s North West regional winner Cloud 23 could have its title taken by any of the three iconic Manchester buildings.

The two restaurants and the 30-storey skyscraper will now go head-to-head with one another and Lakeside Hotel, Lake Windermere in a fight to take the North West title.

The images for the competition, which range from coastal scenes to city skylines, will now face a public vote to decide a winner from each region across the UK. The public is being encouraged to vote for their favourite regional image via voting closing on 19th August.

Each regional winner will then be put forward to win the title of the UK’s Best Window with a View, with voting for the national title running throughout August and September.

The competition invited anyone living in, visiting or working at any building, including homes, offices or public attractions, to embrace their inner photographer and take a picture from a window that has a particularly impressive view.

The hundreds of entries were whittled down to the best in each region, by a judging panel made up of experts from the glazing, architecture, photography, property and interior industries.

James Lee, Director of Marketing at, said: ““This year we have opened up the competition to even more buildings and attractions than ever before. We have been impressed with the high standard of images we have received and delighted that so many people have captured the beauty of the UK from iconic landmarks to new hidden gems. We hope the competition also helps to raise awareness of the benefits of modern, clear and energy efficient glazing. Good luck to all of the shortlisted entries!”

People can vote for their favourite shortlisted views at where they will also be entered into a prize draw with the opportunity to win a selection of prizes including GoPro action camera kits and a Fujifilm Instax camera.
