The Lake District becomes UNESCO World Heritage Site
August 02, 2017
The Lake District has bcome a UNESCO World Heritage site and is the 31st such site in the UK (and overseas territories). Admitted in part for it’s Outstanding Universal Value, The English Lake District now stands alongsite other world famous National Parks like Yellowstone and Yosemite but also famous destinations around the globe sich as the Taj Mahal, the Acropolis of Athens, and the Great Barrier Reef.
This is great news for The Lake District as it validates that which we already know, that The Lakes is a beautiful and special place in our country and it should be cherished but certainly it is a big deal for tourism as being on the UNESCO World Heritage List is bound to generate even more interest from international travellers seeking to understand and discover why The English Lake District has “outstanding universal value” for themselves.
