UK – Castles and Town Walls of King Edward in Gwynedd

The Lake District is the latest British spot to be granted World Heritage status by the UN’s cultural agency. Here are some of our other favourites.

The UK is a nation with a proud and rich history so it’s no wonder it’s home to so many Unesco World Heritage sites, chosen for their cultural, historical or scientific significance.

We round up our favourite spots in the UK from the 31 that have gained Unesco recognition.

1. Forth Bridge

The Forth Bridge is one of the world’s longest cantilever bridges, connecting Edinburgh and Fife by rail.

The bridge itself, which opened in 1890, is a breathtaking site and the view from the bridge over the River Forth is spectacular.

It’s well worth the train ride.

2. Lake District

Unesco says that the hills and lakes in North West England “exhibit an extraordinary beauty and harmony”, and we couldn’t agree more.

Rustic stone walls, rugged hills and tranquil water – what could be more relaxing?

3. Liverpool

Liverpool gained world heritage status thanks to its history as a major port.

Take in the views from Albert Dock and see the spots where history was made.
