Wow this was a tough one! After running a competition to win flights to London, courtesy of Virgin Atlantic...the English amongst us have been left feeling a little homesick. We asked you to tell us what you missed the most about the UK, and after reading hundreds of brilliant answers...we've been left aching to visit Blighty!

Lucky for one of you...that's exactly what you're about to do. After much deliberation, our favourite answer and winner of the two economy flights was Lucie Phillips, with this brilliant answer:

But there were so many good answers that the lovely guys at Virgin Atlantic have given us three goody bags for runners up prizes too...

Was suggested by Gemma Longden as well as her love for Sunday duvet days.

Or as Khalid Masri put it: The musical stylings of cheerful metro-dwelling buskers
